Some Of Our Largest, Heaviest Fabrications Are Watertight And Seaworthy

Highly engineered for maximum performance and versatility, today’s dredging systems are the definition of innovation that increases power, production performance and durability while reducing the equipment footprint.

Steel hull construction is a premier example of high-end weld quality and integrity standards. With a fabrication operation designed around the ability to manufacture large, heavy weldments, Schaffer Manufacturing has played a decades-long role in helping bring hull innovations to rivers, lakes, ports and other dredging, waste removal and mining locations.

As a collaborator on dredge system development, the Schaffer design and engineering team has broad, hands-on experience in the flotation and buoyancy science necessary to support critical propulsion, excavation and pumping systems.

Schaffer has fabricated steel-constructed hulls up to 65 feet long and 12 feet wide. We also manufacture production components used for cutting and excavation.

Schaffer Manufacturing experience in dredging and marine applications includes:

  • Barge Hulls
  • Floating Platforms
  • Booms
  • Ladders
  • Suction Cutters
  • Booster Pump Skids
  • Cutterhead Housing
  • Shrouds
  • Cutterbars
  • Impellers
