Damen launches first aggregate dredger in series for Cemex

The first vessel in a series of marine aggregate dredgers ordered by Cemex UK Marine has been launched at Damen Shipyards Galati (DSGa) in Romania.

The dredger, to be named Cemex Go Innovation, will be used primarily in the extraction of sand and gravel from the seabed.

The vessel has a length of 103.5 metres and a hopper capacity of 3,500 cubic metres. Additional features of the new vessel intended to maximise productivity and minimise maintenance include an enclosed bow to protect deck equipment and reduce green water ingress into the cargo hold.

Delivery of Cemex Go Innovation is scheduled for the early spring of 2020.
