Underwater Dredging Services in NSW

An example of underwater dredging in NSWOver the past 35 years, Southern Commercial Divers have developed specialised methods of underwater dredging available around New South Wales. This safe and efficient method allows for the removal of material such as sand, silt, shells and mud.

Dredging can be used around piles, sand traps, underwater channels, water intakes, pipe lines, the laying of cables and removal of steel scale from cooling tower ponds.

Southern Commercial Divers also use dredging methods to clean clarifiers, waste wash tanks and inlet structures. They use 6 inch pumps, air and water lifts.

Southern Commercial Divers have completed projects with:

Baulderstone Hornibrook -  placing the first extension of the Coniston Sewerage outlet. This involved dredging along 12m to allow the cast iron pipes to be placed on the Head Stocks and bolted up, this project was completed 3 months ahead of schedule.

BlueScope Steel - as part of an ongoing project, Southern Commercial Divers dredge the salt water cooling channels.  This task is done on a tri monthly basis and has been ongoing for over 30 years.

Tallawarra Power Station - Southern Commercial Divers worked on the decommissioning of the coal fire power station by dredging the salt water inlet channels.  Southern Commercial Divers returned to dredge the channels upon the construction of the new gas fire power station for True Energy.
