Picture of the Day: Hector in Norway
Wasa Dredging has just released this amazing photo of their backhoe dredger Hector, working on the Alesund dredging project in Norway.
The Hector, built and owned by Wasa Dredging, is a Wasa BHD 12000 dredger with a 250t Hitachi EX2500 that can dredge to a depth of 22m.
This giant started its work in the area earlier this week.
During the project, Wasa will remove about 9790m³ (solid cubes) of bedrock in four parts.
The project is a little different because the blasting area is located about 125m from Ellingsoy tunnel.
Therefore it demands very precise and careful drilling/blasting. The project also includes environmental dredging of polluted masses.
