Improving Marine Construction Productivity with 3D Visualization Systems

As the global economy continues to improve and populations advance in the coastal areas around the world, the demand for commercial dredging services and effective marine construction capabilities are increasing at a steady pace. To help improve accuracy and efficiency, marine contractors are using marine construction visualization systems, which can… Read More

Wichita Clutch Releases New Dry Friction Clutch for Dredging Operations

The huge power requirements and inertial loads typical of a high capacity dredge pump drivetrain are managed by the clutch assembly. The risk of a blockage in the system adds more challenges to an already demanding work environment, especially when performance and reliability are essential to dredging operations. Read More

Partrac GeoMarine to Test Gamma Spectrometer Technology for Mapping Contaminated Sediments

In June, the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) awarded Partrac GeoMarine Inc. a three-year contract to test a new tool for mapping contaminated sediments. The technology will be used at DoD Superfund sites to map the in-situ distribution of contaminants, such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated… Read More

Van Oord Operates First LNG Only Crane

Van Oord’s first vessel to run entirely on LNG, Werkendam, started work on its first project in May. The world’s first LNG-powered crane vessel is carrying out maintenance work in the port of Rotterdam. Van Oord said the client, the Port of Rotterdam Authority, is pleased with this initial deployment. Read More

Corps Tests Mini-Robotic Submersible Dredge for Future Military Operations and Precision Projects

Earlier this year, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) took delivery of a new mini-robotic submersible dredge (MRSD) built by EDDY Pump. The dredge was a collaborative effort between ERDC and Eddy Pump. ERDC and Eddy started with Eddy’s initial design… Read More
