We can help your project cut production costs by switching to an electric dredge. Converting your dredge and booster pumps can save you up to 70% on production costs per year. Electric dredge options also improve your output by nearly 10% and boost your company’s reputation for government contracts.
Converting to electric can be easier than you think:
To give you a better understanding of the conversion process, we will show you some simple calculations for horsepower to kilowatt conversion. There are a few dredge components which will need to be converted. The dredge pumps, cutter head, service pump, and swing winch all require some form of input.
Dredge Component Conversion Breakdown
|Components||Diesel Input||Calculation||Electric Input|
|Dredge Pump||635 HP||635 HP / 1.341 =||473.53 kW|
|Engine Cooling||35 HP||(None Required)||(None Required)|
|Cutterhead||125 HP||125 HP / 1.341 =||93.21 kW|
|Swing Winch||45 HP||45 HP / 1.341 =||33.56 kW|
|Service Pump||10 HP||10 HP / 1.341 =||7.46 kW|
|Total HP||850 HP||850 HP / 1.341 =||633.86 kW|
