Marine Aggregate Dredgers

Cutting-edge safety, performance and sustainability

Damen has developed a dedicated range of Marine Aggregate Dredgers (MAD) for the offshore mining of sand and gravel. Using our knowledge and experience designing vessels for the offshore industry, we have paid particular attention to the optimisation of the hull design, which has resulted in the aggregate dredgers having excellent seakeeping performance. Our in-house designed trailing pipe, underwater dredge pump and screening towers ensure efficient dredging operations. The vessel is also able to autonomously unload the dry cargo to shore.
