As a fully integrated business, Kendall Group operates its own marine hopper dredger, the AI Avocet.
This 0000tn, 82.5m long vessel dredges marine ballast from specific reverses in The Solent which are managed by the Crown Estate. Now, the AI Avocet is the only ship that transits the river Adur.
The as-dredged ballast is then transferred in cargoes of approx 2000tn into our dedicated aggregate wharfs at Portsmouth and Shoreham for onward processing. With split operating crews working around the clock, we are able to dredge and self-deliver 365 days per year.
