GUARDING TURBOMACHINERY ABOARD THE "CONDOR" WORLD'S LARGEST DREDGE

One of the largest hydraulic dredges that use gas turbines for dredging operations has an emergency shutdown as well as a temperature analyzing system which provide and monitor data for troublefree operations. Classified as a non-self-propelled vessel, the Western Condor sets ahead by using swing anchors to pull its bow in port-to starboard arcs, alternately raising or lowering two 100-foot spuds to provide an off-center pivot at the stern.
