Dear Reza ,

Is it a concrete structure or metal ?

Is it recently  got jam or since long time ?

If it is a concrete structure and recently got jam and diameter of the thickener is big. You may place a backhoe inside the thickener and remove the mud outside by pocklain  and side by side you can engage extra manpower inside the thickener , so that center part can be cleared.

Actually it depend on the quantity of mud lying inside the thickener.
