Trailing Suction Pipe Systems
Mission equipment: your dredge package
Building a hopper dredger requires specific knowledge. This dredging know-how can be acquired when making use of a complete dredging package, comprising all the mission equipment required to build an optimised and efficient trailing suction hopper dredger. The fully customised dredge package will ensure that your hopper dredge is fit for purpose.
Efficient operations due to smart integration
Wherever your yard is located, whatever dredge job is to be done: the customised trailing pipe dredge package will ensure optimal production of your TSHD. The dedicated mission equipment for your dredge design will result in short hopper loading times in different soils, and the smart integration of unloading equipment. For both newbuilds and retrofits, customised dredge packages are the solution for an optimal dredging performance.
