Pump and Soil-Mixture Parameters to Consider

Are you estimating pump production for your dredging or mining project? A growing number of dredging and mining professionals rely on Pumps ‘n Pipeline (PnP) for their production estimates. The estimating software program PnP v1.4 now has more features to help you accurately estimate production for various soil mixtures and pump installations. The new features […]

Trencher Jet Configuration

Another Exciting New Dredging Tool for in2Dredging’s Toolbox!

  The new tool estimates subsea equipment jetting production in any soil types and greatly enhances in2Dredging’s estimating capabilities. A small up-front investment in this jet modelling tool may result in sizeable savings during a project’s execution phase and over the lifespan of subsea equipment. Read more  

Australian Engineering Excellence Awards 2018

WA Australian Engineering Excellence Awards

    Recently, Greg Miller and Sandra Gyles represented in2Dredging at the WA Australian Engineering Excellence Awards.  Judges were impressed with the wide range of entries and the world class innovations that were presented at the WA awards.  It was enjoyable to be surrounded by so many innovative minds! in2Dredging submitted its Subsea Rock Cutting […]

Australian Engineering Excellence Awards 2018

i2D short-listed for Australian Engineering Excellence Awards

  in2Dredging (i2D) has recently been entered in the Australian Engineering Excellence Awards (AEEA) final for 2018 with our unique Subsea Rock Cutting (SRC) tool. SRC estimates the cutting production for any dredging or mining equipment that mechanically cuts rock in a subsea environment.  It calculates the resultant cutting force on equipment thus allowing the […]

Another Six Ways to Increase the Productivity of Your Dredge – Part 2

  Set Benchmarks Benchmarking is used to discover the best performance possible in order to achieve a competitive advantage.  Benchmarking is the process of obtaining a standard, or a point of reference.  Simply put, benchmarks are the what, and benchmarking is the how. Understanding the physics of dredging enables you to easily identify your benchmarks. […]

Six Ways to Increase the Productivity of Your Dredge Part 1

Find the bottleneck in the system and identify surplus capacity If you can identify the bottlenecks that are slowing down your dredge, you can increase productivity. In dredging, there is always one part of the process that is the slowest, and it may change as the dredge progresses. These bottlenecks continuously slow the dredge down. Identifying these bottlenecks will […]

Port Brisbane reclamation area sand fill and sedimentation basin area return water quality

Six Return Water Quality Fast Facts

in2Dredging (i2D) has launched its own tool for predicting the quality of return water. The Return Water Quality (RWQ) model generates a particle size distribution and follows the settlement of each particle size along the length of the sand fill (reclamation area) and/or sedimentation (settling) basin.     i2D releases the following six Return Water […]

Equipment Performance Review (EPR) Highly Commended DPC Innovation Awards 2017

i2D’s EPR Highly Commended on DPC Innovation Gala

i2D’s Equipment Performance Review (EPR) tool received a high commendation for Innovation in Project Design at the DPC Innovation Awards Gala in London. Simon Burgmans was present to receive the award in the name of Ralph Brevet, who  was unfortunately unable to attend the event. The commendation recognises EPR as a fast and simple to […]

Why develop an advanced Subsea Rock Cutting (SRC) tool?

  Rock cutting production estimates are typically either based on experience or on the Specific Cutting Energy methodology. What if you don’t have any relevant experience? Would you have faith in the simplistic Specific Cutting Energy method available for rock cutting, considering that cutting hard rock always involves high capital investments and thus high stakes? […]
