Italian builder Dragflow Dredging has completed construction of a new dredger ordered by an unnamed customer in the United States.

This vessel’s first project will involve dredging fly ash in a power plant that is slated for decommissioning.

The dredger is equipped with a 240kW pump that will work at a flow of 2,000 cubic metres per hour and an on-board booster station to launch the material at a 3,200-metre distance. It also features an automation package that regulates the position of the pump and maintains a constant solid concentration in the pipeline through the push of a button.
