    MAGDALEN replenishes U.S. beaches with the power of VACON® 3000 medium-voltage drives

    UNITED STATES: Somewhere off the coast of New Jersey, the Weeks Marine dredge Magdalen removes thousands of tons of sand off the seafloor and loads it into her hopper. The vessel then navigates to a spot where the shoreline was eroded and discharges the sand there, using slurry pumps powered by medium-voltage drives to reclaim a beach that storms had washed away.
