Dragflow, an Italian company specialized in solid pumping solutions, has supplied a new dredger that will be used for sand mining operations in Nigeria.
The full equipment includes an Hydraulic Pump (HY400) with 2 Excavators (EXHY35).
This dredger is one of the new series, with the operator cabin completely redesigned to be more comfortable with a better view of the work area.
The restyled cabin is equipped with more instruments to monitor work activities, such as a working depth, pump revolutions per minute (rpm), working pressure, critical alarms and dredge position.
A logging system has been installed to track dredge activities and if necessary help in troubleshooting.
Dragflow also gives to its customers the opportunity to integrate a 3G wireless real time monitoring system in order to allow remote control of dredging parameters and operation.
The new dredgers, with extended fuel tank to reduce the frequency of refueling, will also have an innovative cooling system, sound proof enclosure and available coating for acid or basic environments.
