Another Successful Test for Damen Dredging Equipment

Damen Dredging Equipment has been put to the test once again, this time in Yas Island (UAE) where a navigation channel is to be deepened and maintained.

The channel, connecting mangrove woods to the Yas Marina, is to be brought and kept to a max depth of -6m.

For the project, Damen successfully delivered complete dredging package (the DOP250 with cutter unit) to the National Marine Dredging Company. Using an existing pontoon and excavator and newly delivered Damen DOP, NMDC turned them into an instant dredger.

According to Damen, the dredged material on site varies: in the mangrove woods silt and fine sand is dredged. More towards the marina the soil is compacted sand. Therefore the DOP250 had been fitted out with a cutter unit.

The choice for this DOP type was based on the max weight the existing excavator could handle. Moreover, the DOP250 discharges the dredged mixture to 2 different spoil fields,” said Damen.

The complete dredging package that was delivered to NMDC for this project includes the DOP250 and its cutter unit, the required hydraulic hoses, a diesel-hydraulic power pack, a jet pack supplying jetwater including a separate sand mining head and a spare parts package.
