Irish Dredging

Founded in 1976, Irish Dredging is the longest established and most experienced dredging company in Ireland. The company operates in all sectors of the Irish dredging market including maintaining and developing the nation’s ports, providing services and materials to the country’s flood protection, reclamation schemes and specialist services to the oil, gas and water industries.

Irish Dredging is a subsidiary of Royal Boskalis Westminster nv, the world’s largest dredging group, which is currently active in more than 50 countries across the globe.

With the support of other group subsidiaries, specifically UK based companies Boskalis Westminster Ltd and Rock Fall (drilling and blasting contractors), Irish Dredging has the capability and resources to undertake the complete spectrum of dredging related tasks including coastal, riverbank and seabed protection, offshore services, rock and breakwater construction, environmental projects, marine drilling and blasting, port and waterway engineering and pipeline installation.

Irish Dredging’s fleet of dredgers and support equipment is, for the most part, permanently based in Ireland or 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 procedures certified to ISO 9001.
