PHOTO: Ellicott 1870 Dragon

Ellicott Dredges LLC has just released an aerial photo of a portable cutterhead dredger, the 1870 Dragon, during its work in Latin America.

Traditionally, port expansion projects are handled utilizing larger trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHD) or other self-propelled dredging vessels.

In certain cases, smaller, portable cutter suction dredgers are a better solution due to their portability, availability, high production and relatively low cost.

These advantages of a portable cutter suction dredger also apply to port maintenance dredging, especially when dredging has to be performed on a regular basis.
