Irish Dredging’s fleet of dredgers and support equipment is, for the most part, permanently based in the UK thereby minimising response times and mobilisation costs. This also allows for a varied and versatile range of plant and equipment to be matched with the task at hand for optimum performance and cost efficiency.

By its nature, operating in this diverse market requires appreciation and awareness of the intimate interaction between business requirements and the environment. The company has developed an environmental policy consistent with these. To further facilitate these principles, the company is committed to a programme of staff training and ongoing development of innovative equipment and techniques to minimise any impact on the environment.

The highest standards of quality are maintained with our procedures certified to ISO 9001:2000, ISO 14001:2004 and OHSAS 18001:1999.

Irish Dredging is a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster nv, one of the world’s largest dredging and marine construction groups and which is currently active in more than 50 countries across the globe thus providing access to the large group fleet to supplement the UK based fleet.
