VIDEO: Cutter Suction Dredger Nu Compact at Work

Neumann Contractors cutter suction dredger Nu Compact has started its dredging work at a north-western Victorian sand mine.

The mine owners will be operating the dredger 24/7 for a three year period, dredging raw material from the sand extraction areas for processing, Neumann said in its announcement.

Prior to delivery on site the dredger underwent significant refurbishment.

The refurbishment included a new engine, transmission and pump, with extensive upgrades and customization to the hydraulic, electrical and control systems.

The dredger also received a new and improved larger control room.

The Nu Compact is currently undertaking dredging on a continual 24/7 basis and is achieving the productivity and availability targets required.
