TANJUNG TUALANG TIN DREDGE NO. 5 (TT5)

During the glory days of tin mining industry, Tanjung Tualang Tin Dredge No. 5 or TT5 represents the symbol of prosperity in Perak. A tin dredge is like a floating factory. This one, named Tanjung Tualang Dredge No. 5, or TT5, weighs 4,500 tons and is supported by a pontoon of 75 meters in length, 35 meters in width and 3 meters in depth. It was built in England in 1938 by F.W.Payne & Son which, at that time, was a major design engineering company in bucketline dredges.

After 1982 the dredge fell on hard times. All the other dredges in the area were disposed of long ago and this last remaining example was in danger of being of being sold off for its high scrap metal value until heritage-loving individuals launched a “Save the Dredge” campaign.

Fortunately that campaign was successful and the dredge has been preserved and restored. After some delays it is finally open to the public and visitors can now take guided historical tours of the last tin dredge.
