Large industrial plants like petrochemical plants, power plants and desalination plants use large water intake channels for cooling water or for other purposes. These water intakes are commonly connected to lakes, rivers, canals or the open sea and can get blocked by sediments. Often these water intakes are equipped with sand traps to avoid sand entering the industrial plant. At these sand traps, the sediments pile up through the years. That limits the cooling capacity of the plants. Proper and regular maintenance is needed to keep the basins clean and the capacity at its maximum.
The ECO dredgers are an effective tool to keep these intake canals open and the sand traps cleaned. Herewith ensuring a reliable intake of water for your industrial process all year round.
