Ensely repairs the largest USACE dustpan dredger

The USACE Memphis District and mechanics at Ensely Engineer Yard are busy repairing the Wilmington District’s flagship dredger – the Currituck.


The Currituck, the largest USACE’s dustpan dredger, works in the shallow-draft ocean bar channels along the Atlantic and Gulf coasts and can deposit all that dredged material into a surf zone to nourish sand-starved beaches.
