This model of a dredger named ‘Kuphus’ was presented to the Museum by the Bombay Port Trust Authorities in 1914.

Dredgers were large mechanisms used to gather sediments from sea bed which was later used for miscellaneous activities.

In Mumbai (Bombay), dredgers were mainly employed for reclamation works and thus extensive stretches of land were made available for transportation, housing and businesses.
