The machine is traditionally reserved for shallow water dredging. But this dredging machine has the ability to burrow from dry ground up to a depth of nearly twenty feet. In the past, custodians of waterways have had to utilize two different machines. One machine served as an excavator for dealing with shallower and narrower aspects of the waterways, whilst with another, a complex network of cutting, suctioning and dredging has been dealing with deeper and wider areas of rivers, lakes and dams.
This dredging machine is an amphibious device. It single-handedly covers all shallow water dredging work from dry ground to around nineteen feet in water depth. The device has been designed to carry out work in both water and on land. Multipurpose tasks include excavating work, pile-driving, raking work and suction dredging. The machine moves independently. It can anchor on its own. It does all of the typical work, and more of several machines and its assisting units.
Work efficiency and anchoring stability has been assured along with safety. Bureau Veritas has approved the dredging machine as a full-fledged water-going vessel. Before the vessel is officially launched, a maritime authority will inspect its readiness for water dredging work. As an amphibious vessel, this device does not float on the water as a normal water-going vessel would. The device is self-propelled and has the ability to travel at considerable distances, also capable of a maximum speed of four knots.
But on ground, and as an officially tested vessel, the dredging machine can walk stably, safely and freely. Say what you will, but this dredging machine is very much a sustainable development. It most certainly environmentally friendly, given the work that it has been prepared to do. Once this machine is launched, look forward to clean waterways.
