New Dragflow Installation in Brindisi Harbor (Italy)

New Dragflow Installation in Brindisi Harbor

Dragflow extends its wide range of products, launching on the market an innovative “booster station”. The new booster pump is proposed together with traditional submersible dredge pumps and it’s perfect for projects that require a very long delivery distance, or to reach a high discharge level.

The booster station has been completely designed, manufactured and tested by Dragflow’s technicians and engineers, that used their consolidated knowhow and the expertise gained working for several years in the company, in order to assure the suitability and functionality of the end product.

The new booster pump has been used for the first time in the months in Brindisi’s Harbour for maintenance and dredging operations: the innovative product’s guaranteed high performance, reaching the required longer delivery distance.

New Dragflow Installation in Brindisi Harbor.

At the beginning, Dragflow supplied for the harbour maintenance a dredger with telescopic boom with the addition of an anti-turbidity bell to capture the sediments and prevent water turbidity. The sea sediments can be polluted by metals, hydrocarbons, bacteria, chemical substances which in most cases are toxic, resilient and accumulate as debris: a digging operation without turbidity limitation of the surrounding waters could cause serious damage to the marine ecosystem.

Afterward, the Brindisi’s harbour maintenance project expanded and Dragflow supplied the new “booster station”, in addition to the submersible dredge pump, in order to reach a higher discharge level. The innovative product, equipped with an automatic lubrication system, can reach the distance of 1,5 km from the dredging point and it guarantees a capacity of 500 m3/h. It can regulate automatically the speed through the different stages of the operations and it’s provided with a remote control that permit the operators to control the booster from dredge cabin. Dragflow’s booster station is powered by diesel engine, but the same it’s available electric motors.
