IADC: Spotlight on The Mud Motor

Image source: IADC

International Association of Dredging Companies (IADC) recently released a new article titled The Mud Motor: A beneficial use of dredged sediment to enhance salt marsh development.

An innovative approach to beneficially re-use dredged sediment to enhance salt marsh development was tested by a ‘Mud Motor’.

A Mud Motor is a dredged sediment disposal method in which a semi-continuous source of mud in a shallow tidal channel allows natural processes to disperse sediment to nearby mudflats and salt marshes.

The concept has been piloted in the Kimstergat tidal channel near the Port of Harlingen in the Netherlands.

Within this article, the pilot execution and accompanying research is described and the general application of Mud Motor concepts is discussed.
