One of the advantages of working with Southwind is that we are the industry leader in mobility. With highly mobile equipment Southwind is able to reach remote locations quickly and efficiently. While remote locations add to expense, Southwind’s mobility and expertise minimize the cost.
We start with extensive training, and utilize highly-experienced staff and crew. We put safety at the top of our concerns with a written safety and drug-testing policy, plus weekly toolbox safety meetings
Southwind owns all of its equipment, and has stockpiled the tools to meet virtually any dredging and pumping need. We offer seven different dredges along with many booster pumps, dredge tenders, backhoes, and dozers to meet the exact needs of any project.
We have dredges from 6" mudcat dredges to 18" cutterheads, which provides a wide range of options for equipment selection to fill the project needs.
We meet deadlines. With seven different dredges and experienced personnel to run the equipment, we have the right tools and people for the job.
All of our dredges have different digging depths. The smallest dredges can dig 15 feet deep, while the larger dredges can dig 38 feet deep. If it is a pond job we may be able to lower the water depth as dredging progresses to obtain the desired depth.
Depending on the material type such as sand or silt, determines how far the dredge can pump the material. When the pumping distance exceeds the dredges capability we add booster pumps to pump the dredge material to remote locations. These pumping distances have been in excess of 6 miles away from the dredge site.
