An electric cutter suction dredger has been delivered to Romania by Italy’s Italdraghe shipyard.
The vessel has been put in service at a plant processing river winter into drinkable water.
With two spuds and with a pump suction and discharge diameter of 400mm, the dredger has a power supply of 6,000V from onshore.
“This specific application needed a focus on the sanitary regulation for the materials and the substances in contact with drinking water”, said the company.“Therefore, there have been applied special paints.”
The dredger started work a week after its launch.
