Dredge New York at Newark Bay

Dredge New York is the world's largest backhoe dredge. She is a Liebherr P996. This dredge works in Newark Bay off Shooters Island, 24 hours a day. Newark Bay requires continuous dredging, as any newly dredged area immediately starts filling up again. The dredge is owned and operated by Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Co.

This is a video of Dredge New York digging next to the Robbins Reef Lighthouse in New York Harbor.
