I think they are dredging to deepen the channel then pumping it ashore as part of the land reclamation for the port. It all bodes well for this area in the future.

Yes, I found out after posting that they are working on the Thames Gateway. They seem to be dredging out by Sea Reach before proceeding upriver. They are nothing like the old suction/hopper dredgers of old and, to be honest, this one is probably the largest dredger I have ever seen. Quite impressive.... I know I don't get out much.

Glad you got down to the river Phil. This one and the 'Marieke' are working flat out on dredging for the London Gateway Port Development and will be a very familiar sight.
