OVER 60 YEARS CONTRACT DREDGING EXPERIENCE
Neumann Dredging has over 60 years of experience in marine contract dredging and dredging in mining applications. Neumann Dredging built the first dredge in the late 1950s for mineral sand mining.
These dredges are high technology cutting and recovery machines with a well-earned reputation for performance and reliability in capital work marine dredging and mining and resource dredging.
The dredges are de-mountable and can be cost-effectively transported to remote sites around Australia and overseas. In addition, dredging has proven to be a safe and cost-effective method for relocating or reprocessing tailings.
Operational expertise built on contract dredging experience enables us to improve our equipment constantly. This culture of innovation gives us the edge as dredging contractors of choice.
Recent Capital Works Dredging Projects
Kingscoast Estate Project
Hydraulic Sand Transfer,
The project was to hydraulically place 370,000 m3 of sand to raise the surface level of the Kingscoast Estate by 3 metres. The team dredged the sand from an adjacent sand quarry by the Nu Bounty, a 450mm bucketwheel cutter suction dredge combined with a 500mm, 2,000 hp booster pump. The slurry was pumped distances up to 2,000m through a 560mm poly pipeline to the estate. We achieved considerable savings and advantages over traditional methods.
Gold Coast Convention Centre
River and Waterways Dredging,
Neumann Contractors was awarded the civil works contract for the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre project. The relocation of the major waterway, essential services and environmental issues presented some demanding challenges. This project brought its unique complexities as it involved several different concurrent tasks. Neumann Contractors acknowledge the civil work challenges were managed successfully due to the team approach with the builders and consulting engineers.
