Part of: Dredging and Dredged Material Disposal
Abstract: The unique application of a Swinging Ladder Dredge to perform maintenance dredging in the cooling canal system of the Turkey Point Power Plant demanded the design of a semi-automated dredge to meet the customer's requirements. The productivity of the dredge was largely based on the rate of advance of the dredge and not on the volume of material dredged.
