DSC Wolverine for Costa Palmas Dredging Project

Desarrolladora La Ribera, developers of the area’s new Costa Palma private beachfront resort community and marina, recently took delivery and received training in the operation of a 10-inch Wolverine Class Dredge, designed and manufactured by DSC Dredge at its Greenbush, Michigan, facility.

The Wolverine Class dredge can dredge up to 25 feet below the surface and offers a 10-inch discharge configuration, which allows particle clearance of up to 6 inches.

The cutterhead, designed with six cast-steel smooth blades, is attached to a variable-speed, reversible, hydraulic cutter motor manufactured by Kawasaki.

It is powered by a 440-horsepower Caterpillar C13 ACERT diesel engine.

The dredge pump, a J30 Metso Minerals/Thomas Simplicity series, is rated for 200 feet of total discharge head at 4,200 gallons per minute.

Five hydraulic winches, rated with a 4,500-pound line pull capacity, are used to swing the dredge, lift the spuds and lift the ladder.

The Wolverine’s time-tested design, simplicity of operation and ease of maintenance will keep the Costa Palmas dredging project in the East Cape running smoothly for years to come.
