Netherlands-based Dredge Yard has been awarded a contract by UAE company CDC Dredging to supply a customised cutter suction dredger (CSD) to be used for projects involving hard soil.
The CSD will have an LOA of 16.4 metres, a beam of four metres, and a design draught of 0.78 metres.
Dredge Yard said that modifications to the basic vessel design, including the installation of a more powerful Caterpillar C18 engine instead of the standard C13, will increase the maximum dredging depth from six metres to 12 metres.
The truck-transportable dredger will be assembled and tested in Dredge Yard’s facility in Dubai.
