Thousands of industrial facilities use large volumes of water from lakes, rivers, estuaries or oceans to cool their plants. Water intake stations handling inflows to the plants must keep the processes working. Since water is required for the operation, reliability and stable water flow are essential. Significant sediment deposits can blockage the water intakes.


ECTMarine cutter suction dredger or plain suction are well suited for Cleaning of the water intake of industrial power plants regardless whether the project is in an urban or remote, tropical or frozen location.
