After a year of close collaboration with the prospective customer, SRS Crisafulli built and shipped a Rotomite SD-110 shallow draft dredge to an Asian customer in 2013. Three international firms played key roles to close the deal including SRS Crisafulli’s authorized International Factory Representative. The prospective customer needed to remove sediment at its Treatment Plant. Sediment-bearing water from a regional dam and river traveled more than 30 kilometers to the Plant. The river also carried silt to the treatment Plant where sludge was collected at the bottom of sedimentation basins. To achieve acceptable, sustained settled water quality, to preserve basin capacity, and to comply with environmental regulations, the Plant needed to clean its sedimentation basins twice a year. SRS Crisafulli provided detailed product specifications and capabilities for the Rotomite SD-110 dredge, and defined what made the Rotomite SD-110 a superior dredge for the application. After SRS Crisafulli satisfactorily answering all the requests, the customer purchased the Rotomite SD-110. The Rotomite SD-110 equipment package provided a high-performing dredge pump able to move 1500 gpm at 80 ft. TDH in water. The cutterhead was 90-inches wide with a 15-inch pump opening for high sludge production. A unique hydraulic thruster enabled the dredge to be driven like a boat. Pursuant to SRS Crisafulli’s superior worldwide service, a SRS Crisafulli Factory-trained engineer traveled to Asia to support the installation and to commission the Rotomite SD-110 dredge.
