As a sustainable alternative, an all-electric dredger has been delivered to Egypt. Ready to be plugged into the local grid, this development shows that zero-emission dredging is possible.
An electric dredger explained
At plenty of locations – especially near hydropower dams and urbanised areas – dredgers can be powered from the grid. These dredgers do not need diesel engines on board. Hence, the sand mining dredgers are zero emission and make no noise. The energy transition is here to stay.
