The dredging of Tappan Lake has finally begun with the equipment actually in place and on the water, according to Barbara Bennett, director of administrative services for the Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District (MWCD).Bennett stated that 400,000 cubic yards of sediment would be removed from the bottom of Tappan, which would take place near Beaverdam Run Bay, Clear Fork Bay and along both sides of Deersville Road.The silt is to be vacuumed through flexible pipeline, which will cross under U.S. 250 to a site MWCD owns, which is at the northwest corner of Addy Road and U.S. 250, according to Bennett.The big blue and white machine with a large orange fixture, the Ellicott 370 Dragon Dredge, was given the name “CADIZ,” she said and added that the dewatering racks and basins were set up at the Addy property.“The dewatering system is by mechanical means and state of the art systems,” Bennett stated by email. She said that using the pumping system would cut down on truck traffic, which would normally be used in hauling away the sediment. The dewatering system, which had been discussed in a previous MWCD meetings, is a system, which dries out the sediment much quicker, allowing recipients of the material to use it sooner than normal.“We’re having ongoing discussions with Harrison County and also…ODNR (Ohio Department of Natural Resources),” Bennett said. “Nothing has been finalized but we will have over 400,000 cubic yards of material so there’s good material available for fill or use somewhere.”Harrison County Commissioner, Don Bethel, stated the same that they were still discussing the matter with the MWCD and that they were still very interested in obtaining some of that sediment being pulled up from the lake.Bethel had stated in a previous meeting earlier in the year that one idea for acquiring the sediment would be for use in filling the many small valleys near Industrial Park Road. The idea is to flatten out more land in order for the area to be even more attractive to prospective businesses, which have begun springing up there already.[mappress mapid=”21222″]

This breaks the record for the heaviest single lift onto a Coscol vessel, claims the company.The tanks each had a length of 33.39 m, height of 15.12 m and breadth of 14.35 m – dimensions which required extensive preparations before lashing, lifting and loading could take place.Coscol designed a bespoke lifting beam with a length of 24 m, as well as the bending plate which was used for lashing.The vessel upon which the cargoes were loaded, DA AN, has a tandem lifting capacity of 700 tonnes, a length of 179.5 m, breadth of 28 m, depth of 14.8 m and a hold capacity of 37,000 cu m.DA AN is one of four vessels of this type owned by Coscol, which are suitable for carrying outsized cargoes in the specialised shipping market. www.coscol.com.cn
The Dutch office will be led by Kees Van der Steen, who has been appointed managing director, Holland.He said: “The port of Rotterdam can handle the large ships which enable us to deliver cost-effective forwarding solutions for both conventional and project cargo. Our office is just a stone’s throw from the warehouse and very close to the port, which enables me to be on site whenever needed.”According to Tschudi, the office in Rotterdam enables the company to further develop its services from Europe to the countries in the CIS and Baltic states.Eskil Ødegaard, ceo of the Tschudi Logistics Group, added: “As a large part of our business is connected with the Benelux area, opening an office in Rotterdam was the next logical step in our expansion.“An office in Rotterdam gives us full control of the logistics chain from shipper to consignee and most importantly, it will enable us to expand into new service areas.”tschudilogistics.com
