Harbours Dredging

Location: 
Chile

Description: 

Working context
2 dredging applications in the maritime sector. The first, dredging of the load / unload containers area in the Valparaiso Port, the largest cargo terminal in Chile. The second, dredging of a deeper channel to create an area where transit of bigger ships can be possible.
Our solution
In the Port of Valpariaso Draglow supplied a set of electric pumps, EL60B, that working in series and equipped with a powerful system of high-pressure jets allowed fast cleaning of one of the most critical areas for the operation of the port. In the south coast Dragflow performed an upgrade of the existing dredge, reusing the existing hydraulic circuit for controlling a hydraulic pump HY85 with excavators EXHY20.
