Jochen Rohr launches Aggregate Dredge Solutions


MF082817 DredgeJochen Rohr announces the launch of his latest business venture Aggregate Dredge Solutions. Aggregate Dredge Solutions’ services include consulting, design, engineering and installation support. 

While specializing in complete customized dredge and conveyor systems, Aggregate Dredge Solutions also offers components and spare parts for existing mechanical dredges.

Rohr’s family has been in the aggregate business since the 1930s. His family has four different and gravel operations in Germany. Prior to Aggregate Dredge Solutions, Rohr was the founder of the Rohr Corp., which was sold in 2011.

Rohr’s focus has always been on new innovative solutions to improve efficiency and dig deeper. He works with a select team of experienced engineers and other specialists to come up with technology allowing for onboard materials processing, and customized dredges to account for unique applications, climatic, and geographic challenges.

Aggregate Dredge Solutions also focuses on being environmentally conscious. All Aggregate Dredge Solutions dredges are electric, meaning there are no diesel fumes and no exhaust. 

"When the bucket is lowered it is slowed down electronically and feeds energy back into the system, similar to a Tesla," explained Rohr. Additionally, all hydraulic systems are filled with biodegradable oil. 

While the business is based in California, Jochen works with local suppliers and subcontractors to build the equipment as close as possible to the site of operation.
