Water Injection Dredging (WID) has been successfully applied for removing sediment deposits in reservoirs, which results in an increase of their storage capacity. This dredging method is based on the fluidization of the top sediment layer by pressurized injection of water by a dredging vessel. The fluidized sediment can be transported towards...

As regular maintenance and relocation of sediment deposits are highly expensive, Port authorities seek more efficient solutions for reducing the costs and CO2 emissions of maintenance dredging. One solution, water injection dredging (WID), is carried out for maintaining the sediment deposits which predominantly consist of clay and silt. WID has...

There are many locations where the accumulation of mud poses a problem. In lakes it can have a negative influence on the ecological situation and in port basins it can hinder traffic. Usually these mud deposits are removed periodically with regular dredging vessels. Looking at the continuous nature of the mud deposition and at the trend of an...
