Italdraghe SpA, an Italian manufacturer of specifically designed dredging and mining applications, has delivered another Marina Master 8000 dredger to Fambridge Marina in Essex for her new owners Yacht Havens Ltd.

This is the third dredger of its kind to be supplied to a UK marina owner and the second to this client.

A key feature of the dredger is its horizontally-hinged dredging boom manufactured in two sections with a central hydraulically-controlled vertical hinge, allowing the dredger to work under floating marina pontoons and finger piers without having to remove them, the Italian company said.

It has the capability of maneuvering into individual berths, cleaning them and then reversing out, there is no need for the marina owner to empty the entire marina prior to the start of the dredging operations. Only one or two moored boats need to be temporarily moved out at a time and, as each berth is dredged, these boats can be returned to their original mooring as the dredger moves on to the next berth, Italdraghe said.

The self-propelled dredger, with a PD180 dredging pump, was built in the Italdraghe shipyard on the Italian Adriatic Coast.
