Lagoon Dredging & Maintenance

IMS is proud of its roots in the industrial and wastewater lagoon industry; the first Versi-Dredge was launched in a wastewater lagoon in 1986. Lagoon dredging and municipal holding pond cleanup often requires handling contaminated debris and understanding environmental protocols. Dredging industrial plant lagoons is necessary to keep production schedules on time and businesses in compliance with regulations.

Versi-Dredge Capabilities

All IMS Versi-Dredge products still come standard with cable drive provisions. When dredging lined wastewater treatment plant ponds, the operator can switch from Starwheel Drive self-propulsion mode and run the dredge on a 2-point or 4-point shore anchor drive system.

The SolidsMaster cutterhead can also be fitted with adjustable gauge wheels to protect the pond liner during lagoon maintenance. Whether you are dredging municipal sludge, hog farm ponds, or a lime sludge pond, the Versi-Dredge is the right tool for the application.

Murjan Al-Sharq for Marine Services (MSMS) performs maintenance dredging at a major oil producer’s sea water plant in Saudi Arabia. The 7012 HP was required to work 24 hrs. a day in two shifts in 120 degree heat.

One of Merrell Bros. IMS Model 5012 LP Versi-Dredge units deploys its 4-point cable drive anchor system to work in a poly lined wastewater lagoon. The sludge is pumped to shore where it is rapidly dewatered into a truckable cake using Merrell’s filter press systems.
