Cutter Dredger Monitoring

Integrated and reliable dredge system for real time visualisation and monitoring of your progress

TELEDYNE PDS for Cutter Dredges is designed to the requirements of the dredge operator to carry out their job more efficiently. The operator has a real time overview of the dredger with the top and side views displaying the vessel outline, ladder, and cutter head along with the surveyed depths, design, and dredged depth.

Real time visualization and monitoring

TELEDYNE PDS Cutter supports visualization and monitoring of the vertical position of the suction tubes. It also shows information about the progress such as the absolute position of the dredge head position in relation to the digital terrain model (DTM) and design model. Dredged areas are shown in various views, which are updated as soon as new data is available. Multiple monitors with independent layouts are tailored to the needs of the dredge operator and helmsman. A color-coded DTM highlights the high and low spots. The DTM is updated real time, registering the progress of the dredging work. The updated real time models supported are depth, differential, and production models. The updates follow the shape of the cutter head. The update is immediately visible in the top, side and 3D views. 3D design models allow definition of highly complex designs. Concentration, flow, vacuum, and pressure data can be displayed.

Cumulative production

A cumulative production calculation and reporting feature is implemented.
