A Damen Cutter Suction Dredger, type CSD500, has been built under license by Canal Naval Construction for the Egyptian General Authority for Fish Resource Development.

The CSD500, named ”25 January” after the day of the beginning of the Egyptian revolution, has been built by Canal Naval Constructions Co (CNC) of Port Fouad, Egypt. Damen Dredging Equipment sent over all vital components such as the dredge pump, the control cabin etc in containers. Together with all required drawings and the DTC assistance, CNC built a perfect CSD500. The CSD500 is fitted out with a large number of optionals, as well as the auxiliary equipment required for the jobsite

The CSD500 has a max dredging depth of 14 m, and a max installed power of 1.293 kW. The cutter power is 180 kW. The CSD500 has a mixture capacity of some 4.000 m3/h. The standard dredger has been customized by adding a large number of optionals, such as a jib crane, navigation lights, a communication package, air conditioning, a bilge pump, heavier fenders, a fire fighting installation and a 500 L fresh water tank with tap and sink. The dredger received Bureau Veritas class approval as it will be working near the Mediterranean coast.
