Ellicott dredgers keep industries moving VIDEO
Ellicott dredges have been supplied to over 100 countries across the globe, including countries in the African continent. An Ellicott 670 dredge is currently operating near the Chevron-owned, Olero oil & gas Flow Station, located on the Edo Delta River, in the Delta State of Nigeria.
The Ellicott 670 dredge is performing the maintenance of a navigation channel, to accommodate the draft of the Chevron service vessels.
Layers of silt have accumulated in the channel, causing the need for this dredging project.
The required width of this channel is 50 meters, along with a required depth of 3 meters.
The Ellicott° 670 dredge is equipped with a 14″ pump, total installed power of 715 HP and has the capability of dredging at 12.8 meters of depth.
The dredge discharges the material in a disposal area which includes a filtration trap system. This system enables the runoff of filtered effluent back to the water body.
