The exceptional growth registered by the Indian port sector during the last years as well as the very ambitious expansion target set for the next decade created a huge and highly competitive dredging market in India. Thanks to the 150 years of experience in worldwide dredging activities, International Seaport Dredging Private Limited has built a solid reputation in the country as a reliable and efficient partner for a very large number of dredging works:

Capital dredging Works

This is ISD core business for which we rely on DEME fleet of dredgers and marine equipment, which is one of the largest in the world. The possibility to choose among such a variety of equipment linked to an extensive technical knowledge enable us to select the optimal solution for the most challenging capital projects in India in all type of soils.

Due to the increasing depths of the Indian access channel and Port facilities, the likelihood to encounter hard rock layers is also increasing. ISD can rely on the experience built within DEME regarding rock dredging techniques: Drilling and blasting, use of powerful rock cutter dredgers / backhoe dredgers.Moreover, continuous research and development of new rock dredging techniques is ongoing within the DEME group and is a major added value for ISD.

Recently, ISD had successfully dredged Hard-rocks at JNPT IV and at Salaya

Many industrial developments such as desalination plants, power plants, LNG terminals require the installation of offshore pipelines which are normally installed in trenches to be excavated in the seabottom.

This type of works requires a very accurate execution under stringent environmental requirements as well as engineering capacity and absolute commitment in meeting the contractual milestones.

Reclaim land for new industrial or residential areas, islands, and beaches is part of ISD Core Business. ISD can successfully reclaim all kind of material on land, and apply soil improvement methods whenever required to meet the fill requirements.

With the increasing depths of the Indian Port channels, the siltation rates will increase and maintain the navigation channel at required depths is becoming a challenge. ISD can deploy appropriate equipment for such maintenance works.

ISD has a broad expertise in the field of coastal protection works. These works are often linked / combined with other dredging activities, and can be undertaken by ISD.
