OilTech supplies custom Gold Dredge to African buyer

Oiltech Dredging Equipment from the Netherlands has successfully delivered another gold mining dredger with all the associated equipment, this time to a customer in Central Africa.

According to Oiltech, this will soon be the fourth new machine purchased for gold mining in a short time.

This dredger is specially designed for alluvial mining activities in deep rivers or lakes. Thanks to the experience gained with both the dredgers and installations from the field, the design is focused on easy and economical maintenance, transportability and easy operation.

Another important feature of this design is a special (removable) ladder extension with jet water function, which allows this dredger to go deeper into the river than the standard version.

Oiltech has worked closely with ECTMarine for the design and construction of dredging components, to ensure the dredger performs most effectively and efficiently using the latest dredging technologies.
