Booster Pump Stations
A long discharge distance behind your dredger can be bridged easily. By adding a sand pump station, the dredged mixture is transferred to the spot where you need it. Booster Stations add pumping power to your dredger on site.
Exactly in sync with your dredger
A booster pump station teams up with a dredger. This interface has to be flawless; it’s essential to combine the right equipment. Therefore, our Cutter Suction Dredger range and Booster Station range are an exact match. They even share the same dredge pump and drive, and the dredge master operates the booster using remote control from his operating seat.

Booster pump stations fit for the job
Placing a Booster Station in a dredge discharge pipeline cannot be done at random. Careful selection of the booster size is vital to team it up efficiently with the dredger. Moreover, the location of the booster unit in the piping is crucial for the success of the dredge job. The Damen team can assist you in choosing the perfect match.
