Berth Availability

You can’t offload a ship if it’s sitting offshore. Yet, when you have to dredge a berth the ship may have to wait. When a berth shoals, ships may be forced to arrive or leave with a
partial load. During no-dredge environmental time windows, shoaling may become so bad that ships need to anchor off site and lighter their cargo to and from your dock.

With a SedCon® Turbo System, your berth stays at full depth allowing higher thru-put for your dock and greater profits for your company.

The image at right shows how one of our systems has eliminated dredging for more than 10 years at a site that used to shoal more than 12 ft/yr.
