PPG’s Coastal Resources team toured the General MacArthur Dredge, a 32” cutter dredge designed to perform capital, maintenance, and beneficial use dredging.
General MacArthur joins the ranks of Callan Marine’s other dredges: the 18” General Pershing, the 16” General Patton, and the 12” General Eisenhower. The hull was launched on November 6, 2019, at C&C Shipyard in Belle Chasse, Louisiana. Work is anticipated to begin soon with assisting in aiding marsh creation and helping control Mississippi River depts.
The General MacArthur is one of the largest cutter suction dredges in the U.S. market.
