Electric-Powered Dredge Launched in New Jersey
A new 16-inch electric powered cutter suction dredge has been launched through a joint project between Custom Dredge Works (CDW), Inc and Triborough Sand & Stone. The launch occurred at the Triborough Sand Plant in Voorhees, New Jersey. The electric-powered dredge is more eco- friendly and efficient than traditional diesel-powered dredges. It limits air, water and noise pollution and requires less maintenance. This is one of two electric dredges that CDW delivered to New Jersey this year.
Triborough Sand & Stone is a division of Eureka Stone Quarry Inc., which specializes in construction, aggregates, asphalt and ready-mixed concrete. The company has been open for nearly 100 years. CDW, headquartered in Topeka, Kansas, is one of the largest dredge equipment manufacturers in the United States Aggregate Industry.
