Our knowledgeable engineers design new equipment, as well as modify or retrofit existing equipment.

Field Service

The Field Service Operations represent a critical link to DSC and its customers. Often this is the only group to interact with customers face to face long after the sale. Whether across the street or across the globe, DSC’s Field Service Operations are ready and willing to get you back running and keep you running. The DSC field service department offers dredge maintenance training, dredge retrofits, dredge moves, and dredge fitness surveys. We do onsite surveys of your equipment with recommendations for equipment upgrades and improvements that will increase your throughput. With today’s market conditions and the economic challenges we all face, every dollar counts.

Dredge Operator Training

DSC offers Dredge Operator Training to those companies desiring to train their personnel, whether you own a DSC dredge or not. There are several ways DSC can tailor a training program to fulfill your individual needs.

For new DSC dredge purchasers, we offer a 2-day training course at our DSC facility, in addition to the onsite operational training at the time the dredge is launched. DSC customers merely pay for the transportation to DSC and lodging for their personnel. The preliminary agenda for this training includes a day of classroom-style training on the fundamentals of dredging, while the second day focuses on the various systems and maintenance recommendations of your new DSC dredge.

Each training class has a flexible agenda that can be changed from the standard format depending on the customer's individual needs. The training is tailored to fit your needs and questions are welcome during the class to ensure that all questions that arise during training are properly addressed.

Also, for new DSC dredge purchasers, DSC can also provide a 1-day, classroom-style operator training class at the customer’s location. The new customer is merely charged for the trainer’s actual travel expenses, such as airfare, lodging, car rental, and meals. This on-site training is performed in conjunction with our field service startup & testing to eliminate duplicate travel for other DSC personnel. The on-site classroom training would typically begin the day following the dredge launching, testing, and troubleshooting period, and followed by our standard on-the-job-training onboard your new dredge.

A one-day, classroom-style operator training class is available to any company desiring to train their personnel on dredge operational training, mine planning, determining dredging efficiency, and dredge maintenance. A complete list of the topics covered in this training class and fee information is available by contacting DSC's Executive Sales Administrator for pricing and scheduling.
