Backhoe Dredger

A Backhoe Dredger (BHD) is basically a pontoon equipped with a

hydraulic excavator. To stabilize and secure the pontoon three spuds are installed. The excavator will excavate the soil, and discharge it into a split hopper barge that is moored alongside the pontoon. The split hopper barge unloads the soil at the deposit area.
