Mining sand or tailing involves an ever increasing dredging depth. That is what this Deep Cutter Suction Dredger (DCSD) has been designed for : dredging deeper with full power on the cutter. And with a practical direct drive of the submersed dredge pump and catamaran execution.
A compact dredger
The DCSD can dredge up to a depth of -25 metres – yet is fully dismountable. To maximise production, a submerged dredge pump is integrated in the suction ladder. This Damen Dredge Pump is directly driven by a diesel engine which is also mounted onto the ladder.
