CableArm Bucket on the Job at Pickering, Ontario

At the Pickering nuclear power plant in Ontario, Canada, the cooling water inlet channel from Lake Ontario requires maintenance dredging about every 10 years. Clean Harbor Environmental Services is using a Liebherr 855 crane and a four cubic yard Cable Arm level-cut overlapping side plate environmental bucket to remove sediment with little measurable turbidity over background. The sediment is loaded into a bin barge adjacent to the crane, then transported to a dewatering plant on site. A Cable Arm bucket was first used for this application in 1992, and again in 2002.
