Off Shore Accuracy

offshore-300x151“The basic rule of dredging is that you don’t want to over- or under-dredge,” explains Adam Whitcome, operations manager for CGC Dredging, the firm tasked with dredging the harbour entrance of Port Geographe in Busselton, WA. “Over-dredging means you spent time and money, like burning diesel, that you didn’t need to; and if you under-dredge your floor may not meet design depth specification. You really need to be precise and efficient in your work and also have the ability to make adjustments according to design parameters.”

But how do you get it right?
