Ellicott Dredge Technologies: IMS 7012 HP JetMaster for Malaysia

The 7012 HP JetMaster® dredge maneuvers itself into the dredging area with its patented Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system

Ellicott Dredge Technologies (EDT) has announced the sale of an IMS Model 7012 HP JetMaster dredge to Matrix Reservoir Sdn. Bhd. for maintaining Tok Bali Supply Base (TBSB) in Kelantan, Malaysia.

According to the Baltimore, MD, based dredge manufacturer, the system will perform annual maintenance of TBSB which serves the oil and gas industry in offshore Peninsular Malaysia and the Gulf of Thailand.

TBSB’s location at the mouth of the Semerak River means that it gets regular sedimentation, which requires continuous maintenance dredging to ensure an optimal depth of 9 meters (29.5 ft.) at the approach channels and berthing areas, said EDT in its release.

Commenting the latest news, Ryan Horton, EDT Vice President, said: “We are pleased to see the 7012 HP JetMaster® dredge in operation at TBSB. We started working with the TBSB in 2015. After multiple site visits by our Territory Manager, Najib Ariffin and Technical Sales Manager, Michael Young, we were selected over our European competitors. It is a testament to our global presence, superior technology, and ease of operation in port environments.”

From a technical operations standpoint, the 7012 HP JetMaster dredge was chosen for its patented Starwheel Drive self-propulsion system with patented TractionMaster technology which allows for automatic adjustment of speed and torque on the propulsion wheels.

In addition to its ease of operation, the JetMaster dredge utilizes two high-pressure deck pumps to channel 31.5liter/second (500gpm) through 24 heavy duty jet nozzles to break up compacted sands and clay. EDT also added that TBSB purchased 2km (6,560 ft.) of discharge line, spare parts, and an IMS dredging GPS system.

IMS delivered the dredge to TBSB’s site in Kelantan on DAP Terms, and provided five days of extensive on-site training including safety, operations and maintenance.
