Severely silted up ponds and reservoirs can impact on the water storage capabilities of a mine or plant, negatively affecting downstream processes. The Slurry Sucker Dredging Unit is capable of extracting high tonnages due to the design and engineering of the dredge head, all whilst allowing the Reservoir to remain online.

The unique design of the dredging system allows it to be used on plastic lined dams without damaging the liners.
