A Proudly Australian Owned and Operated Dredging Company
TAMS dredging capabilities were established in 2010 when WA Dredging was incorporated into the TAMS Group, with the aim of providing a specialised dredging capability to service local ports and waterways, reinstating and maintaining their navigable depth. Projects involving capital, maintenance and environmental dredging along with beach nourishment and rock transport/placement are all suitable for our dredging fleet.
Our primary marine asset is the Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger known as the ‘River Bee’. This split hopper dredger arrived in Fremantle in December 2011 fresh from an extensive refit in the Netherlands. The River Bee is a specialist THSD, which can quickly be configured for maintenance dredging of ports and channels, as well as for sand mining or bypass projects.
We also operate two highly technical backhoe dredges ‘Total Support’ and ‘FT3’, both of which are ideal for marine excavation, dredging and construction works including armour placement, shore crossings, rock breaking etc.
Dredge spoils, rock dump materials and the like can be transported in our Split Hopper Barge ‘North’ while our seabed plough can be towed behind support vessels to remove high points and level the seabed.
To manage our dredging works, the dredging fleet is fitted with PDS software from Teledyne-Reson which provides real time monitoring and visualization of the dredging operations. Bathymetric surveys can be performed from the support vessel, fitted with our R2Sonic 2020 Multibeam.
As part of the TAMS Group, we offer clients direct access to a wide range of associated marine equipment and services, so that when you’re planning a dredging project with us we can also provide diving support, workboats and the support vessels you need, and even temporary moorings and ropes if required for your job.
For TAMS, and our clients, the safety of life at sea is always paramount and we operate an integrated management system in line with ISO 9001:2008 and the ISM-code to ensure we deliver the highest levels of surveillance / awareness / observation and safety.
TAMS is a uniquely prepared company, and we can deliver the highest level of dredging and associated services, anywhere around Australia.
Some of our successfully completed dredging projects include:
- Port of Bunbury
- Port of Esperance
- Port of Albany
- Stingray Creek, Port Hedland
