Damen Dredgers in Azerbaijan (VIDEO)
To avoid a repetition of the events that occurred as a result of the Kura River bursting its banks and in accordance with a presidential decree, the Ministry for Emergency Situations has delivered to Baku suction dredgers CSD-500 manufactured by Damen Dredging.
The total length of the unit is 49.10 meters, while the capacity of its water pumps is 4,000 cubic meters per hour. Depending on the composition of rock in the riverbed, the capacity of the installation during dredging changes.
Sucking mostly silt, sand and hard rock, these units carry them by pipeline over long distances.
The distance from the point of drilling to the outlet through a direct pipeline is 1,500 meters. By installing additional transfer stations, the distance of discharge can be increased to a maximum of 5 km.
The floating pipelines are made of a composite material in Russia, while the pipes to be used on land are manufactured by AZENCO in Sumgayit.
