Project Description

Along the Shwegyin River, which is located in the Myanmar region of the same name, an impressive dam was built to exploit the hydroelectric potential of the watercourse.

Following this operation a large artificial basin was formed, inserted in the context of a forest still largely untouched.

Through our local distributor we have proposed the DRH85/160 dredger, easily transportable even in the most remote areas. We have equipped the HY85/160 hydraulic pump with two hydraulic excavators to move the backdrop of the artificial basin, where the gold coming from the river is settling
