CASE STUDY:

Floating a 360
tonne dredge

Here is a gold mining project that our Terra's Structural Engineering team worked on in Waikaia (just north of Invercargill). This is the largest gold dredging operation in the country. 

Terra’s task was to come up with a safe way to move the gold dredge from one part of the Waikaia river to another part, some 5km away. The dredge weighs 360 Tonne and is built on top of a pontoon which allows the dredge to float.
