Knowing where to dredge
Accurate completion of any dredge job
The positioning visualisation system offers the dredge master a real-time overview of the exact location of the drag head, cutter unit or suction head. The system keeps track of the soil that has already been dredged on the survey map, bringing a halt to costly underdredging or overdredging.
Fit for any dredger
Whether a stationary suction dredger, a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger or an excavator, accurate dredging is the way to a profitable dredge job. Using angle transmitters and GPS positioning, the exact position of the digging tool can be calculated. This position is then mapped in a predefined environment, allowing the dredge master to accurately dredge as per the contract terms.

Your partner in dredging
Dredging requires more than just shipping a dredge instrumentation package. It requires more gear such as a dredge pump to do the job, and it requires crew training and project management to bring the works to a successful conclusion. Damen can assist you during the full lifecycle of your dredger.
Dredging instrumentation can be supplied as a single item, or as a complete system or package. For a retrofit or newbuild, dedicated dredge monitoring equipment will assist you doing your dredge job in the most efficient way.
As well as shipping the required dredge instrumentation to your yard, we can also send over our Field Service Engineer to assist the crew with installation and calibration. This will shorten the installation time, and give an opportunity for crew training.
For additions to your dredge systems, spares and repair requests our Service team is available 24/7.
