SIMEX Bangladesh Is Good At Dredging

A dredge is defined as an apparatus used for an excavation activity that is carried out at least partially or fully submerged underwater, with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing of them at a different location.

Dredging, as a process, is used to remove the deposits percolated underwater for the purpose of clearing the water pathway for ships to pass; to create adequate space to construct important bridges, dykes, and dams and to weed out silt, intoxicants, and pollutants from the bottom of the water.

The dredging process mainly involves carrying out excavation, of either naturally deposited sediments or man-made debris such as rocks, bottom sediments, construction debris, and refuse, and plant or animal matter on the bottom of either shallow seawater or freshwaters. In general terms, dredging implies digging up the gathered sediments from the seabed and disposing of them at some other site.
