DSC Dredge’s Most Requested Dredge in 2020 – The Marlin Class Has A Newly Improved Design! 

SOURCE: DSC Dredge | April 3, 2021

Reserve, LA – In 2020, DSC Dredge’s Marlin Class Dredge was the most purchased and sought after making it DSC’s top produced Dredge for the year. Why? The Marlin Class underwater pump mining dredge is designed to meet the needs of deep mining applications and aggregate deposits by providing a more efficient tool for material excavation. From inception, DSC prides itself in customization along with providing its clients with the RIGHT CHOICE of dredge for their needs. As a result, DSC builds each Marlin to the exact requirements of a particular operation, with quality in design to handle a particular deposit—from sand and gravel to industrial minerals—to ensure its maximum efficiency. The Marlin’s deep digging capability is made possible by the use of an underwater pumping system with a high torque cutter drive assembly to complement the rigorous demands of the deep mining industry. Digging depths range from 35 feet [10 m] to more than 200 feet [61 m], an achievement unmatched in the dredging industry. Discharge sizes range from 8 inches [200 mm] to more than 24 inches [600 mm] to allow for a wide range of production and flow conditions to match specific mining operations.

A New Design: Currently under construction and coming available mid-2021, is DSC’s newly designed 14″ [350 mm] single engine Marlin Class underwater pump mining dredge equipped with a 1,125 HP [839 kW] diesel engine. The newly designed Marlin dredge will have a 65′ [19.8 m] dredging depth capability, but the most talked about improvement is that it is now completely transportable via both trucks and intermodal shipping containers thus making freight cost efficient. In addition to premium features that already maximize operational efficiency, every Marlin Class Dredge can also incorporate all of DSC’s newly released technology including DSC Vision and Dredge Rx.

While the Tier 4 engine is a new design, the Marlin Class dredge is still available with lesser Tier engines. As a result, the Marlin Class dredge can now be utilized by dredge owners and operators worldwide.

Dredge Equipment Customization
At DSC Dredge, we specialize in customizing dredging equipment to meet the exact requirements of your unique application. DSC Dredge employs the largest dredge design/engineering team among all North American and most global manufacturers. Our roots go back more than 60 years as a family-owned and -operated dredge manufacturer. And during that time, we have built hundreds of dredges. Our six standard dredge models are world-class. But our strength lies in our ability to modify or custom design any dredge to fit almost any application.

How do we do it?

  • We explore all of the details of your project, such as the materials being dredged, length of flow run, depths, discharge point elevation, engine and pump preference and any other relevant information.
  • You may require extreme dredging depths, deeper hulls or increased excavation power. We can make all of that happen and more.
  • We involve you in every aspect of building your dredge—from specification and options to manufacture to delivery, training and maintenance.
  • Upon delivery, your dredge typically will be assembled by DSC Dredge personnel and placed in service only after we run it through intensive testing.
  • We then fully train your operating staff to ensure they understand the unit and its functions, so they can quickly and competently begin dredging your project.

Dredge Operation Training and Education
DSC Dredge offers numerous different and flexible training options for companies that are new DSC dredge owners. We also offer training to any company that seeks to educate its personnel on dredge operation, mine planning, dredge maintenance or maximizing dredging efficiency—even if the company operates other dredge brands.

All new DSC Dredge owners have access to a 2-day training course at DSC’s primary U.S. training facility in Reserve, Louisiana, as well as onsite operational training when the dredge is officially launched. The first day of training reviews the fundamentals of dredging, while the second day focuses on the specific operations and maintenance of the new dredge.
