Upgraded Huta Marine dredger back at work
Huta Marine’s Huta 14 is again dredging after undergoing substantial renovations in Dubai.
The Saudi Arabian company’s self-propelled cutter suction dredger (CSD) finished testing last week after the works by IHC Middle East.
The two-year restoration works included replacing three diesel engines and integrating an electrical installation for the underwater pump engine and drive.
Huta 14 has started work on the Ras Al-Khair Yard project on the eastern coast of Saudi Arabia, alongside Huta 12 and Huta 9.
The project will require 35 million cubic metres of dredging and reclamation works to extend the port’s land facilities to cover an area of 800 metres by 4,100 metres.
