Gloucester Docks winter dredging

    Bell Dredging Equipment used in Gloucester Dock’s biggest ever winter dredging.

    Through our U.K. dealer Watson & Hillhouse Ltd Bell supplied two sets of Bell 200 pumps complete with power packs and floating discharge lines.

    Due to drought in the past year, sediment had built up in the docks making it impossible for vessels to navigate.
    One excavator mounted Bell 200 dredge pump was fitted with a water jet assisted cutter head, while the other Bell 200 was suspended from a crane and thus fitted with a double cutter head.
