Plug Into The Grid And Save – Electrification Of Diesel Dredges And Boosters

With diesel fuel prices expected to hold at $3.00+ per gallon through 2013, converting diesel dredges and booster pumps to electric power can result in a 50% to 60% savings in monthly energy costs. In addition, your operation can achieve up to a 7% increase in tons/hour output while also reducing your dredge downtime. Converting to electric power instead of diesel will also promote sustainability, and in many countries it will provide your contractor customers with LEED points for energy efficient projects. The conversion costs and energy savings analysis will not only highlight an excellent return on investment, it will also indicate a number of additional benefits for conversion, including increased uptime and lower maintenance costs.
