Delaware Officials Commission 2 Ellicott Dredges

Tuesday, November 08, 2005
Ellicott Dredges announces several significant new orders from three state governments in the USA, as well as for multiple U.S. federal government agencies. One project is an EPA-approved PCB Superfund project. Ellicott has delivered the final dredge of a previously announced precedent-setting four dredge order for the State of Delaware, a Series 670 "Dragon" named the "BROADKILL". The State has named its new MC-2000 Mud Cat the Indian River. Delaware Secretary of State Harriet Smith Windsor commissioned the Broadkill and the Indian River for Governor Ruth Ann Minner at a formal ceremony on November 4 , at the State’s newly dredged Indian River marina. John Hughes, the Secretary of Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources & Environment (DNREC) also officiated along with Robert Baldwin, Director of the State's dredging program. Minner’s remarks, delivered by Windsor, noted that “This marina serves as an excellent example of the benefits reaped by boaters in the state’s dredging program,” and that the Governor had also commissioned the State’s first two Ellicott dredges as a State legislator, including the 23 year old Series 370, the “Blue Hen,” which is still operating. Windsor concluded that the Governor has always supported the State’s dredging program.
