US-built dredger delivered to Azerbaijani owner
US-based DSC Dredge recently delivered a new dredger to a marine contractor in Azerbaijan.
The 50-foot (15.2-metre) dredger has a draught of two feet (0.6 metres) and is designed to be operated by one crew. The maximum dredging depth is rated at 25 feet (7.6 metres).
One radiator-cooled Caterpillar 440hp (328kW) diesel engine provides power to the dredge pump, the cutter drive, and the hydraulic winches.
The dredger is compact enough to be truck-transportable for easy deployment.
