The new E-Dredger® features the renowned E-Crane equilibrium principe for smooth, efficient, energy saving operation in a multitude of dredging and related applications. These include sites where E-Crane customers typically operate, such as piling, ship salvaging, heavy demolition with dynamiting, classic dyke works, construction of breakwaters, quay construction, land reclamation and beach and embankment preservation.
Recently, an E-Dredger® was installed onto a self-propelled spud barge for our client Herbosch-Kiere (part of the group Eiffage) in Kallo, Belgiuim. The 1500B Series, model 10290 B SP E-Dredger will be used mainly for dock, lock and port maintenance jobs. The dredging ship Albatros started operation in the Port of Rotterdam in 2009. In 2010 it started work in the Port of Ostend, placing blocks with unmatched placement accuracy thanks to the unique parallelogram style boom.
Besides the capability of travelling under bridges, Mr. Geert Van Mulders and Mr. Roger Decorte from Herbosch-Kiere agree:
The biggest benefit is the low cost per ton, that offers us an economic advantage over our colleagues as well as an environmental friendlier alternative over traditional rope cranes and excavators.
