Ensure a head start for your dredge job
How to prepare your DOP dredge pump system
Ordering a Damen DOP pump is an excellent start to your dredging project. Yet, it is not all there is to be done. Most DOP dredge pumps are stock items and can be delivered at short notice. We recommend that you make optimal use of this short lead time to prepare your dredging equipment setup, as well as your job site. And once your DOP dredge pump is mining sand or cleaning out a pond, keep it in excellent condition to maximise its contribution to your project’s success. The daily maintenance checks explained below are a first-class start.
