Dredge Yard delivers dredger to UAE developer
Dredge Yard has delivered a multi-purpose cutter suction dredger to a real estate developer in the United Arab Emirates for the reshaping and maintenance of existing islands.
The dredger will be used for connecting some of the islands and deepening the sea entrance between the islands.
Due to current and erosion, the coast of the islands changes with the years. For this reason, it is necessary to perform periodical maintenance to keep the shape of the islands and maintain a usable beach.
The dredger is equipped with a heavy-duty cutter head and underwater dredge pump for high performance and for pumping a high-density mixture of sand.
It can pump the sand at up to 1,500 metres and dredge up to 6 meters depth. The draught of the vessel is only 0.7 metres.
The multi-purpose cutter suction dredger was delivered completely assembled and launched into the water by mobile crane.
