Dutra Christens Hydraulic Excavator

The East Coast division of Dutra Construction Company, Inc., based in Miami, Fla., held a christening ceremony for its new hydraulic marine excavator Hercules in late January at the Port of Miami. The excavator reportedly incorporates the most efficient dredging technology, and is uniquely equipped to accurately dredge hard rock without underwater drilling and blasting. Hercules can work in depths up to 70 ft. (21.3 m), has increased digging ability and breakout force, and uses a synthetic oil in order to lessen the impact on the environment. Miami will reportedly be home to the excavator for the next several years while it completes a long-term channel and harbor deepening project. The Dutra Group, based in San Francisco, recently opened a Miami office in order to better serve the harbor and navigation route dredging and marine construction clients in the region. The company will also reportedly introduce Antone, a 198-ft. (60.3-m) marine excavator, in the coming months.
