Group De Cloedt - DC Granulaten

The dredging and transport company DC DREDGING, is located in Breskens (The Netherlands). Its main sphere of activity encompasses dredging and the production of marine and fluvial aggregates, as well as different types of sand.

DC DREDGING owns 2 sea-going Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers: the RIO with a hopper capacity of 2450 m³ or its latest acquisition: the DC Vlaanderen 3000 with a capacity of 2600 m³. The sand and aggregates produced by these 2 vessels are transported to our customers by smaller transportation vessels and barges, all of them equipped with proper drainage systems. The company has its own barges with drainage e.g. RIO 1 and RIO IV and charters others.

All barges used for inland transportation of aggregates are in accordance with the BRL9313 standards in order to guarantee completely clean materials.
