Trimble HYDROpro Dredge System for Grab Dredger Aida

F.F. Marine Inc. has installed a Trimble Marine HYDROpro Dredge System aboard the ‘Aida’, their twin-clam grab dredger. 

“SITECH Philippines, our local Trimble Marine dealer, installed the system and used Wi-Fi to send the GNSS antenna positions from each trolley to the bridge so both operators can work independently,” the company spokesperson said.

“As a result, Aida is benefiting from improved productivity; it’s now able to get precise 3D positioning of both dredge heads in real time. The GNSS system accounts for the dredger’s heading, pitch and roll, and precise depth of the grabs’ cutting teeth, as well as changing tide levels.” 

Dual cable payout sensors are also integrated in to the HYDROpro Dredge software to give precise depth of the clamshell dredge cutting teeth and update the dredged surface.

The dredger is currently being used for the Iloilo Strait South Navigation Route dredging project.
