DM-55: IMS’s Solution to Deep Maintenance Dredging (VIDEO)

No longer will ports need to hire large commercial dredging outfits to do expensive deep maintenance dredging. Now they can invest in their own maintenance dredging system that will allow them to maintain a maximum depth of 55 ft (16.7m) at their port. The DM-55™ is IMS’s solution to making deep maintenance dredging and environmental dredging affordable.

In addition to maintenance dredging with a hydraulic pump and pipeline, water injection jets can be attached to the cutter shroud and convert the dredge into a water injection system that will put the sediments into suspension so bottom currents can push them out to sea.

This is a common form of maintenance performed at many ports around the world.

The DM-55™ system ships in two pieces on drop deck trailers greatly reducing mobilization and demobilization costs associated with larger dredges that are impractical to move over roads.

It is easily installed in the field with quick connections for the hull, ladder, hydraulics, and electronics. The DM-55™ can dredge silt, mud, and other light sedimentary materials using the dual marine prop drive system.

When dredging in heavier currents and removing sand at deeper depths it is recommended to run the dredge on the included cable drive system which can run off of two or four point anchor systems. The cable drive system can be rigged in several configurations using a combination of the following anchor point types: pilings, spud anchor barges, and land based anchor plates.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
