The new dredge boasts two unique characteristics: 1) Electric Powered, and 2) A Chain Ladder cutting system. The electric powered dredge will greatly reduce or eliminate Air pollution, Noise pollution, Water pollution, and ongoing Maintenance requirements. The Chain Ladder cutting system will allow the dredge to mine effectively and efficiently in the presence of large rock, coble, and other debris indicative of aggregate deposits in this area of Booneville adjacent to the Raccoon River.
Custom Dredge Works’ President, John Jones, is very excited and confident in the effectiveness of this new Dredge to achieve or exceed production goals and ambitions. Mr. Jones is quoted saying “Our focus was to design and deliver a World-Class Flagship Dredge to Legacy Materials. We believe that we have achieved that, and we are excited to see how this aggressive and cutting-edge dredge will aid Legacy in its rise to be one of the top aggregate mining operations in Iowa”.
