Seatools, a Dutch subsea technology company, has introduced the fourth-generation DipMate® backhoe dredging monitoring and control systems.
The upgrade encompasses two models: the Essential and Pro. The Essential is a cost-competitive visualization system that contains all essentials for efficient backhoe dredging and Pro is an advanced version that can be delivered with a range of automation modules enabling operators of all skill levels to dredge safely and maximize dredging productivity.
Jan Frumau, Managing Director at Seatools, said: “Since we first launched DipMate, the system gained tremendous popularity among backhoe dredger operators around the world. With the introduction of the fourth generation, we will now be able to serve an even larger market share.”
“Thanks to the introduction of the DipMate Essential, Seatools proposes an economically attractive solution for small- and medium-duty excavators as well as operators that do not require automation functionalities but do appreciate common DipMate characteristics such as high levels of accuracy, reliability and customization.”
“As of now, Seatools offers appropriate backhoe dredging monitoring systems even to those operators whose budgets, skill levels and needs are limited,” said Frumau.
The DipMate Pro, which is able to endure the toughest of dredging conditions thanks to its rugged hardware, can be executed with a range of intervention and operator assistance modules that enhance productivity and safety, the company stated.
