TSHD “Jean Ango” Delivered to French Customer

The hopper dredger “Jean Ango” has been handed over to its owner, DRAGAGES-PORTS. The 1,500 m3 dredger was designed and built in Spain by Astilleros de Murueta, using Damen dredging equipment. The new vessel will maintain the French river Seine between Rouen and Le Havre.

The “Jean Ango” has specifically been designed for round the clock maintenance dredging. The 1,500 m3 hopper dredger is fitted out with a 600 mm trailing pipe, working at a dredging depth of max -26m. Two identical Damen dredge pumps, type BP6055MD, either fill the hopper, or pump ashore using the bow coupling or the customized side coupling. Furthermore, conical bottom valves are fitted to dump the cargo. The dredging gear is complete with a degassing system, as experience shows a high percentage on in-situ gas, trapped in the layers of silt.
