USA: State of Ohio Dredge Contract Awarded
Many of Ellicott dredges are working in the most remote and exotic locations around the world. In addition to these, however, Ellicott frequently provide for the dredging needs of customers at home in the United States.
Ellicott were recently awarded a contract by the State of the Ohio to build a 12″ dredge powered by a 540HP diesel engine to be used exclusively for work at Grand Lake Saint Mary’s. This custom dredge will add to the State of Ohio’s growing fleet of Ellicott dredges still working, some over 45 years old.
It is being designed and built to meet the specific needs of the State of Ohio, and will be delivered in early 2012.
The State of Ohio selected Ellicott after an open tender process as providing the best value.
