Dredge Central once again outdid itself by taking a diesel dredge and completely reprocessing into a state of the art electric dredge. This dredge was entirely customized with a jib crane, water cannon, and filter system. Safety was of the utmost importance for Coalview and as such DC built winch stern locks, moved the original placement of the discharge pipe, and created a JHook device for operation of the A-frame.
From start to finish this process took up the greater part of 3 months to completely re-man the entire dredge. DC used it’s own standard dredge refurbishing procedure to ensure that each step of the process went through with perfection. Coalview’s agents made multiple trips to view this process and were pleased with the knowledge and progress each time they visited the DC facility.
Last week the dredge shipped on 4 different semi truck loads heading for the mountainous western region of the United States. Dredge assembly and training has started this week on site with the help of DC. We want to make sure our customers are comfortable through every step of the dredge purchasing process, which includes trucking and installation.
Coalview will use this dredge for the reclamation of coal reserves in ponds. This electric cutter suction dredge will be sure to do the job!!
Below are some pictures of the recent disassembly of the dredge and shipment preparation:
