Ghent Dredging nv has been involved in dredging, civil engineering and earthworks for almost 40 years.
Since the implementation of new legislation in 1990s, our focus has been increasingly diverted to all kinds of environmentally related contracts.
As a result, an environmental department has been incorporated in our organization. Existing activities like dewatering and treatment of dredged sludge have been supplemented with new activities like existing and innovative soil-remediating treatment. These kinds of contracts have subsequently been carried out in Belgium and the north of France.
Our approach is to find solutions together with the stakeholders involved to achieve the most efficient possible result for both private and public clients.
Our experience in soil remediation is in various areas, such as:
Traditional earthworks, both with and without stability-measures (sheet-piling, etc)
Treatment of polluted soil at our sludge-treatment centre at GSC Rodenhuize (Ghent)
Tank cleaning and removal
Dimensioning, installation and maintenance of equipment for pump and treat, dual phase and air-extracting from soils with various purification units (oil separation, active carbon filters, sand filters, etc.)
Dimensioning and injecting various products to stimulate the deterioration of soil pollutants
As a contractor specialised in marine and civil engineering, as well as roadworks, we are also able to reinstate and/or redevelop each site.
Having been ISO 9001 and ISO 140001 certified, we have now also qualified for the Achilles Safety, Health and Environmental Care Certificate. This certificate will be required in standard and complex on-site remediation contracts.
