High Accuracy, Cost-Effective and Eco-Friendly Dredging Solution

Project description

A solution for eco-friendly affordable dredging

Dredging is a widely used practice in waterways for removing sediments and debris. The environmental concerns associated with dredging include turbidity at the point of dredging and at the point of discharge, as well as mobilisation, dissolution and dispersion of pollutants retained in the sediments. The EU-funded Toolbot project proposes a solution ideal for dredging activities in difficult to reach areas like ports, marinas and dams. Their high accuracy Dredging ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) prototype developed through the Spanish CDTI in the e-Corydora project, is currently in a TRL 7 stage and in the patent process in the EPO. The project has also developed a discharge buoy to redirect the dredged sediments to the seabed avoiding water column contamination.
