Creating new land or restoring flooded lands is common throughout the world for real estate development and rehabilitating storm damaged areas. The use of a dredge is the most efficient means of completing these projects. Using an Ellicott® cutter suction dredge allows an operator to dredge and place material precisely where he wants.
Typically larger Ellicott® dredges are used for this application with the most common being the Series 1170 Dragon® Dredge. The size of dredge selected for the project will depend on its scope. If reclaiming a small swamp land a Series 670 Dragon® Dredge will be ideal. However, if building a large scale development, considering a Series 1170 Dragon® Dredge or larger is ideal.
