Sand Dredging

Keeping the approach channels to a port open or creating a new facility can benefit the local economy on many levels.

The largest Ellicott® dredges have been used for this application. In particular, the Series 4170 Super Dragon® is a popularly utilized machine. If the facility requires ongoing maintenance, an Ellicott® Series 1270 or 1870 Dragon® will fit the job well.

Sand discharge from an Ellicott® Series 670 Dragon® dredge working in Nigeria.

This sand mine required some extra digging depth and Ellicott's Florida, USA based customer had to utilize a Series 370HP Dragon® dredge with 42ft (12.8m) digging depth to reach the deepest of his sand deposit.


Shown here is a Series 870JD Jet Dragon® dredge that is electrically powered.  Engine emission laws in New Jersey, USA required this sand dredging operation to power its dredge and booster pump electrically.
This sand mine had very specialized requirements for its mine. The deposits of this New Jersey, USA mine were beyond the depth of any of Ellicott's standard dredge models. Ellicott's sales and engineering departments worked closely with this operation to design a custom sand dredge that could reach 80 ft (24m) digging depth.
