Ellicott has just delivered and started up a Series 370 Dragon® dredge for a shrimp farm in Mexico’s Pacific Coast.
The Ellicott 370 dredge includes a 12” x 10” pump, installed power of 416 HP and can reach a maximum dredging depth of 10 meters (33 ft).
The dredge was acquired by an established shrimp farming operator, who chose an Ellicott® dredge because of its reputation for reliability and durability under heavy-duty conditions. The dredge will be utilized to remove sediment and maintain the ocean intake channel that feeds into their shrimp farm lagoons.
Thanks to its quality and simplicity of operations and maintenance, the Ellicott 370 is one of the most popular dredges in Mexico. Ellicott has had a strong presence in Mexico for many decades, with local technical support provided through their authorized representatives at Makisur S.A.
