The Ports & Dredging industries are dynamic and environmentally challenging industries to be part of. Facing many potential environmental issues, the Port and Dredge operators must be forever aware of the environmental impacts that may quickly occur.

With constant vehicle traffic and hydraulic equipment used in stevedore operations, there is a potential risk for spills of hazardous substances to end up in the stormwater system or other environmentally sensitive areas.

We recommend a range of spill response, stormwater management and containment solutions to ensure your organisation protects its environment.

We also work closely with numerous dredging companies to assist with their possible environmental requirements and minimise downtime.

To assist your environmental efforts, we have compiled a list of potential risks facing organisations within your industry and corresponding product solutions and other related material to help you protect your environment.

FAQs

Q: Do you operate vehicles or hydraulic equipment?
Spills from trucks, generators or other hydraulic equipment require immediate remediation to ensure any hazardous substances do not enter near-by stormwater drain pits or pollute environmentally sensitive areas. Therefore, it is important that organisations are prepared to effectively respond to any spill incident.
