The long-planned Jomtien beach renovation has continued after a new dredger ship has arrived on the beach, according to Pattaya City Hall officials.

 

The new dredger ship arrived in the beach area and continued to work earlier this week (November 4th).

 

Company staffers told associated Thai press that the new dredger ship can do work faster and more efficient than the previous one. The dredger ship is working seven days a week, according to City Hall.

you cannot defeat nature with a dredger - the sand will be washed out to exactly where it came from - beach design is extremely complicated - there are ways to prevent erosion but it requires expert study not a dredger

You can, but as you say, not the way this one is being used.  There is a sand cycle on and around a beach; sand moves from offshore, onto the beach, along the beach, and back offshore.  You have to dredge from outside that cycle, then add it to the beach.

You can beat nature with a dredger, and keep erosion away, but Thailand has yet to find the know-how.
