Millmac Dredging Division
Our dredging division (see more at www.dredgemaster.com) works with shipyards, marinas,
local governments, and developers to provide quality dredging services – new dredging or maintenance dredging. Millmac
has completed projects in beach building/restoration, residential dock and canal dredging and shipyard dredging. We have built
an excellent dredging reputation based on our quality of work, responsibility, and expertise in the field.
Solution: For Cruiseship Owners
Disney cruise lines selected Millmac to provide all labor, equipment, and materials to restore the beaches on their island,
Castaway Key, in the Bahamas. Millmac arranged for all equipment procurement and transportation to Castaway Key, via
marine RORO vessel. The dredging was interrupted twice when two hurricanes, first Francis and then Jeanne, destroyed the beaches.
Undeterred and working on a 24-hour basis after the incidents, Millmac was able to restore the beaches to Disney’s satisfaction
and reopen the island to their cruise passengers.

Solution: For Developers
Iberostar Resorts decided to construct a new resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica. During construction of the hotel, it was discovered
that the beach area was full of silt, not sand. Millmac was selected to provide marine construction and dredging services
to restore these beaches. The silt was dredged from the near shore beach area, and new sand was located offshore and strategically
deposited in this area. The result was a pristine beach suitable for the new incoming tourists.
