Rebuilt 24-inch Cutter Suction Dredge

Rebuilt 24-inch Cutter Suction Dredge

Currently being rebuilt in the State of Kansas, USA, this dredge is suitable for completion as a 24-inch (610 mm), 28-inch (711 mm) or 30-inch (762 mm) dredge. The rebuilding project includes:

  • The size of the suction pipe has been increased to 30-inches. Double jets with 2-inch (51 mm) nozzles have been added for increased pumping efficiency.
  • The two side pontoons have been lengthened and substantially strengthened from the original manufacturers design, providing additional flotation for the redesigned, heavier ladder.
  • The new ladder lifting frame has been substantially increased from the original to eliminate play between the pontoon ends, and providing increased lifting power.
  • The original ladder trunions have been replaced with new, substantially stronger ones.
  • The winches (two swing winches, one ladder winch, and two spud winches) are new, 44,000-pound hydraulic winches with new foundations. Replacing the old spud cylinders with winches allows stern cables to be deployed in lieu of using the spuds if desired.
  • The spud guides are all new and the connection of these to the hull has been hardened.
  • New fuel tanks provide 1,600-gallon (6,057 L) in four removable cells.

The hull and other structural work is essentially complete, however the pumping machinery has not been installed, pending owner selection.
