Kraken Series ‘McClelland Dredge’ launched in Alberta, Canada
Hagler Systems of Augusta, GA, has commissioned the company’s latest Kraken Series ‘McClelland Dredge’.
According to the company, this new vessel was launched yesterday at a customer’s mine site in Alberta, Canada.
The Dredge is 175 feet long x 57 feet wide, weighing in at 1.7 million pounds, and she pumps 7,500 cubic meters per hour. It took 38 special-permit big rigs to haul this project around 2,650 miles to her destination.
There she will work on a Mature Fine Tailings (MFT) pond to pump mineral waste. Tailings are finely ground rocks and other mineral waste that are a by-product of mineral mining.
