Providing the lowest cost per tonne of dredged material, Damen offers a range of dedicated Marine Aggregate Dredgers. The MAD boasts excellent seakeeping. An optimised hull design and the enclosed bow shape ensures that these vessels can operate in harsh weather conditions, and protect their cargo from water ingress. Our in-house designed draghead, underwater pump and screening towers ensure efficient dredging operations. The vessel is also able to autonomously unload the dry cargo ashore.
