Busy first half 2021 for Ellicott Dredges

The first half of 2021 has been very active for Ellicott Dredges – both the Baltimore and New Richmond manufacturing facilities have been busy building and shipping dredges all over the world.


As of June 10, Ellicott has so far:

  • Shipped a total of 14 dredges and boosters, to 11 different customers in 5 different countries;
  • 9 of these shipments were Dragon® Cutter Suction dredges, ranging in size and models from 370HPs (10″) to 2070s (20″);
  • 5 Booster Pump assemblies were shipped to customers, including Ellicott’s new 20″ Tier 4 Booster;
  • All these shipments combined required over 50 truckloads to ship.

Ellicott’s newly released 20″ booster pump is equipped with EPA Tier 4 engine rated at 1125 HP (838 kW).

The booster is currently at work supporting the U.S. Corps of Engineers’ DMP project at Poplar Island, Maryland.

According to Ellicott, this project involves offloading a volume of approximately 1.9 million cubic yards of dredged material to the placement site.

Ellicott offers a complete line of portable cutter suction dredges and booster pumps from two locations: Main plant and executive offices in Baltimore, Maryland, and second factory in New Richmond, Wisconsin, USA.
