A few examples of projects which, literally, have been organised from A to Z by JMN:
Project: Coastal Protection Project of The Gambia
Because of the versatile possibilities of the dredger "Eems" , Müsing Dredging & Civil Construction was invited to offer the cutterworks for the Gambian Coastal Protection Project to the main contractor.
Arguments to use the dredger "Eems" in this project were: Easy transportability was evident, as the dredger could be transported to West Afrika economically by a standard containership , seaworthiness was requested because the works had to be carried out in open Ocean shore area, and shallow draught was requested because the dredging depth was only 3,0 m under mean Ocean level.
Project: Dredging the Mundaka river in Spain
In the very sensitive biospherical estuary of this tidal river, the bed of the river had to be deepened for shipping purposes, and partly brought back to the original meandering track. With the out coming sand, a beach area at the ocean shore was replenished.
Some facts: Sand dredged abt 350.000 m³. Length of the dredged riverbed abt 6 KM Dredging period: 4 Months. The pipeline for the disposal of the sand was laid in the river bed as a sinker, to protect the river banks.
Equipment used for the project: Dismountable CSD "Eems", Multicat Jannick Müsing, Dismountable spud pontoon, various earthmoving equipment and some km of pipeline. The dredger was positioned using very exact LRTK system providing position and height in cm accuracy, and monitored/piloted by advanced dredging software to allow most exact dredging of the requested cross profile.
Arguments to use this dredger: Seaworthiness was required as part of the job had to be carried out in the river mouth (which means working in Oceanic waters), shallow draught was requested, as depth of the new dredged riverbed was only 1,50 meter under Low tide level.
Project: Dredging of a dammed up part of a river in the Alps
The cutter "Eems" was transported (mainly by train this time) into the mountains, and put to work in a dammed up part of a river (500 meters above sea level !). Because of the dam, the river area had been landing up with sand and gravel which had to be removed to secure the water transport capacities of the river.
Project: Dredging of an extension area (Cold Harbour) for the enlargement of the Gosport Marina yacht harbour, 2000
The famous Yacht harbour of Camper & Nicholsons was enlarged.
The dredging of the harbour area, known as Cold Harbour was carried out with the 1.000 m³ Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger "Berend Müsing".
"Berend Müsing" brought the dreged material away to the dumping area South-West of the Island of Wight, some 15 NM from the dredging spot.
Cold Harbour area was not offering much manoevring space for "Berend Müsing", parts of the job were done with only a few meters of free space beside the dredger.
Dredged Volume: 100.000 m³
Dredging depth: CD - 2,00 m
Dumping area: Dumping ground SW from Island of Wight
Projekt: Diverse Nassbaggerprojekte in Städtischen und Ländlichen Gewässer.
Über 200 realisierte, und viele Hunderte begutachtete/angebotene Projekte bilden eine unvergleichbare Quelle an Kenntnis und Erfahrung auf dem Spezialgebiet Nassbaggerarbeiten in Städtischen und Ländlichen Gewässer.
