Loaded on a pontoon, the electric, dismountable wheel dredger will make her way to Antwerp where she shall be loaded on a transport vessel bound for Cartagena.

“After the transport to the mining site in El Bagre, we will commission the dredger for her work as overburden removal dredger in the alluvial gold mines,” said Royal IHC in their statement.

The dredger is designed to remove overburden by dredging to expose gold bearing sediments.
