VIDEO: Bell Dredging Equipment Busy in Oceania’s Gold Mine
Bell Dredging Pumps has successfully produced and delivered a fully line-of-sight remote controlled amphibious excavator to a customer in Oceania.
“All functions, including pump, side pontoon and power pack control can be operated from 200 meters away as well as from the cabin,” said Bell in its release.
In accordance with their contract, Bell Service engineers commissioned and trained the customer’s personnel.
The operating area of the machine, equipped with a Bell 250 dredge pump and power pack, was a large gold mine where flash floods, cave-ins of the walls and sinkholes can compromise operator safety.
