Ellicott Dredges Announces Three Custom Dredger Contracts

Ellicott Dredges, a Baltimore based manufacturer of dredging equipment and dredge parts, recently received three contracts for custom-designed dredgers.

In the first instance, an international chemical company selected Ellicott to build a custom electric bucketwheel dredger to mine salt in a very hard digging application.

The new dredger, which will increase the mine’s output per operating hour and reduce its cost per ton of salt produced, will become the mine’s primary dredger.

The salt will be used as feedstock for various chemical products such as chlorine based PVC.

In the second case, Barnstable County, Massachusetts, has awarded a contract to Ellicott following a public tender.

The new dredger will be used to maintain small harbors with beneficial reuse of the sand for beach restoration.

The dredger represents a major step up from a smaller standard design Ellicott dredger, a Series 670 Dragon® model named the “CODFISH,” which Barnstable has operated reliably and satisfactorily for over 20 years.

Finally, Ellicott announces that a European chemical company has given it a contract to supply a small bucketwheel dredger to mine fertilizer feedstock.

All three deliveries will be completed before the end of 2017.
