The dredge pump is frequency driven by an electric motor with a power of 1500 kW. A jet water pump with a capacity of 1000 m3 is placed inside the star board pontoon and feeds the jet nozzles on the DN700 jet suction head. The maximum suction depth of the dredger is 12 meter below water level. The dredger feeds a booster station over a distance of 3.8 km with a mixture flow of 4000m³/h.
Installation of the IDRECO Dredger Control System guarantees maximum efficiency in dredging and means maximum production with as less energy use as possible. The system controls the pump and suction tube fully automatic based on mixture velocity, vacuum in the suction pipe, discharge pressure and mixture concentration measurement.
