Dam cleaning dredging

Location: 
Udine
Year: 
2015
Description: 

In this dam cleaning project, our Environmental High Depth System is operating at depths of 50+ meters, cleaning an area of 36.000 yard2 with clay and alluvium material.
Dragflow provided 3 hydraulic pumps model HY85/160B with two cutters model EXHY20 each. The  dredging capacity is up to 6160 US gpm, satisfying the customer’s requirements.
This system allows executing the dredging operation while the dam is in full service, thanks to the Anti-Turbidity Bell that covers the zone where the pump and cutters are operating, keeping all disturbances within.
