Every year PETER MADSEN REDERI A/S dredges many hundreds of thousands of cubic meters of material from the seabed and the harbours of Denmark and other regions of Northern Europe.
Projects range from the maintenance dredging of 1.000 m3 in small yachting marinas, excavation of trenches for cables and pipelines to the larger capital dredging works of many tens of thousands of cubic meters in navigation channels and harbours.
Many different types of material are dredged, so the company has at its disposal equipment for every eventuality; from the dredging of polluted material in industrial shipyards to the capital dredging of hard moraine clay and chalk.
No matter if the material has to be transported over long or short distances, dumped, shipped or pumped, PETER MADSEN REDERI A/S has the vessel and the equipment to suit all requirements.
The fleet consists of vessels from the smaller M/V GRY MADSEN, that is especially suitable for dredging projects in small harbours with its capacity of 70 m3 and bottom water dump doors, to the largest vessel of the fleet M/V GRETE FIGHTER. With a capacity of 390 m3 and one of Denmark's largest and most powerful excavators – a Demag H95, it is capable of excavating down to depths of 12 meters.
M/V GRETE FIGHTER is also equipped with a sand pump for trailing suction dredging which can suck material from depths of 17 meters.
PETER MADSEN REDERI A/S ensures that the latest technology in the areas of positioning and dredging monitoring equipment is installed on the working vessels. Therefore the company can supply all the necessary control and documentation that the customer requires.
