VIDEO: Renaturierung by Royal Smals

Royal Smals, a Dutch company involved in hydraulic and civil-engineering works, has just released a video about their work in the Lichtenau area in Germany. 

The project, undertaken for the client Joos Umwelttechnik GmbH, included dredging of a significant amount of sand, gravel and clay from a former aggregates pit along the Oberrhein, near Lichtenau.

The removed materials were used for creation of new nature zones along the existing embankments – a project called ‘Renaturierung’.

During the work, around 100.000m³ of material was removed from the area by their 300mm cutter suction dredger Polaris, using rtk-GPS positioning, said Smals.
