What are water canals?

Water canals are artificially created hydrotechnical structures used for various purposes: irrigation, transportation, drainage. Canals are designed to connect water bodies or accumulate excess water collected by drainage and drain it. By installing additional elements of hydrotechnical structures, it is possible to control the water level. They play a particularly vital role in providing water resources necessary for agriculture, supplying water to industrial enterprises. Navigable canals are intended for the transportation of goods or people. Canals function as important infrastructure to help manage water resources and facilitate economic activity. They have become significant elements of the landscape, contributing to the cultural and historical heritage of the areas they cross.

We specialize in cleaning and dredging waterways, using advanced technology such as the “Watermaster Classic” and “Truxor” and several types of excavators to effectively maintain these waterways. With over 15 years of experience and the most modern equipment, we offer complete solutions for canal cleaning and dredging projects.

How is water canal cleaning performed?

Water canals need to be regularly cleaned and dredged to remove sediment, debris and vegetation that can interfere with water flow and navigation. Our team first performs a thorough assessment of the canal, identifying areas of the canal that need to be cleaned and deepened. We create individual projects adapted to the specific requirements of each canal, considering key factors: canal depth, vegetation density, environmental aspects.

For cleaning and dredging wider canals, we use the “Watermaster Classic” multipurpose dredger, which can easily navigate shallow waters and access confined spaces with ease. It can remove sediment and silt from the bottom of the canal, excavate accumulated materials, restore the depth of the canal, and optimize water flow. The technology ensures minimal impact on the canal banks and nearby ecosystems.

Aquatic vegetation often grows in water canals, which hinders navigation and the aesthetics of the landscape. The “Truxor” floating machine that we use can easily reach difficult areas of the canal, with cutting attachments and rakes, it efficiently cuts the vegetation and moves it to transportable areas. The amphibious device “Truxor” can swim on water and drive on land thanks to its unique design. In this way, the water flow is restored, and the functionality of the canal is improved.

Both “Watermaster Classic” and “Truxor” technologies allow us to efficiently manage and maintain water canals, as they are designed to minimize disturbance to water and the surrounding ecosystem, and our specialist team adheres to strict environmental requirements during all projects, monitors water quality, thereby reducing any potential impact on the environment.

Our team has over 15 years of experience working with “Watermaster Classic” and “Truxor” technology, helping to ensure optimal results for every canal cleaning and dredging project. We prioritize safety, efficiency, and environmental responsibility in all our activities.

One example of such projects conducted by us is the cleaning and management of the Nemunas Island canal in 2012, during which silt was dug up, contaminated soil removed with a floating crane, loaded into barges, and floated away.
