Tower: New Dredging Control System for UK Dredging

Tower Software Ltd., a company involved in providing custom built software and hardware to the Hydrographic Surveying Industry, has installed a new crane dredging control system on the UK Dredging vessel Cherry Sand.

“Our in proprietary crane control system outputs data from the crane to the processing unit on the bridge showing the 3D Model of the current dredge job,” Tower said in the announcement.

The self-propelled grab hopper dredger Cherry Sand is also equipped with a range of buckets to enable dredging in a wide variety of materials. The hopper well is fitted with a grid to avoid debris being deposited at sea and discharges via hydraulically operated bottom doors.

The dredging crane is fitted with precise depth-indicating equipment and a computer-controlled safe-working load system to prevent accidental overload conditions.
