“Lots of different projects underway over there,” the company said.

The Barracuda Class Swinging Ladder Dredger is a hull pump swinging ladder dredge with standard discharge sizes ranging from 10 inches through 16 inches.

The contractors use Barracuda dredgers mostly in waterway maintenance and lake revitalization projects.

Available in diesel or electric power, the standard Barracuda Class dredge discharge sizes range from 10 inches (250 mm) to 18 inches (450 mm).

Custom options and discharge sizes available upon request, said the company.
