Sweeping arms for offshore and inshore

  • MRD marine support makes sweeping arms for both offshore and inshore use. We distinguish between three types:
  • Sweeping arms for use in sea specially developed for rough circumstance and big surfaces
  • Sweeping arms for rivers flexible and efficient for the removal of dirt on the water and around the banks
  • Sweeping arms for small areas of water many sweeping arms cannot be used in shallow waters, but MRD marine support developed a special sweeping arm which makes this possible.

Innovation in sweeping arms

MRD marine support is always looking for improvements in order to develop even better, more efficient, sustainable and effective sweeping arms. We look for materials that innovative, better constructions and we optimize techniques.

Lightweight sweeping arms
Our search for innovation led us to develop, amongst others, our lightweight sweeping arms. These are lighter in weight and of stronger material than that usually used in sweeping arms. This makes our sweeping arms more sustainable and they have a longer lifespan.

In terms of innovation, we always try to collaborate with other parties when this is possible. We work, among other things, together with governments and (environmental) organizations. For example, at the moment we are working together to find a suitable solution for removing microplastics from water.
