Water Injection Dredging WID500






The Damen dismountable Water Interjection Dredging kit is designed to transform any suitable workboat into a versatile dredger. The WID500 system is for instance easily installed on a Multi Cat 1908 or any other small work vessel. All the components of the WID system are container sized for practical transport and quick mobilisation, not requiring dry docking. Water injection dredging is a technique that is ideal for maintenance dredging in ports, harbours, access channels and berths. Also known as ‘agitation dredging’, it is an effective and efficient dredge method making use of the power of tides and currents. Sedimented silt is relocated without the need for a disposal area.
