The General Bradley takes shape

The General Bradley, a new 28” Callan Marine’s cutter suction dredger, is taking shape at Halimar Shipyard.

Bulkhead walls are being erected and three ABS 12 DZC engines with alternators are about to undergo testing before being shipped from Belgium to the shipyard.

The General Bradley is diesel-electric driven, with a total of 9,260 horsepower.

At 341’ in length with a 6.6’ draft, the General Bradley will focus on brown water division projects and is ideally suited for both maintenance and capital dredging projects.

Also, it will feature advanced production automation and monitoring systems.

“The General Bradley is a demonstration of our commitment to capital improvement projects along the Gulf Coast region,” stated Maxie McGuire, President of Callan Marine.

“The Bradley will transcend our ‘middle market’ offering and truly be a difference-maker in large river and ship channel dredging.”

Finally, the General Bradley will join the ranks of Callan Marine’s other dredges:

  • the 32” General MacArthur,
  • the 18” General Pershing,
  • the 16” General Patton,
  • the 12” General Eisenhower.
