Italdraghe Dredging Equipment Package on Its Way to Guyana

This week Italdraghe will deliver a newly-built cutter suction dredger and booster station to Guyana, South America, as part of a complete dredging equipment package.

The SGT 180 B cutter suction dredger and SGT 180 booster have been custom-designed and built by Italdraghe in its main shipyard to specific client requirements for the purpose of extracting riverbed gold.

The 28 metre-long dismountable dredger, constructed in accordance with Italian Naval Registry (RINA) regulations, has a suction diameter of 200 mm and a discharge diameter of 180 mm. With total installed power of 380 HP, provided by an Iveco C90 engine, the dredger can work at a maximum depth of 15 metres, which is considerable for a dredger of this size.

The RPV200 Italdraghe on board dredging pump unit is extremely resistant to wear being manufactured from Cr-hard cast iron with a hardness of 600 Brinell and with a special wear-resistant manganese four-blade steel impeller measuring 565 mm in diameter.

The dredger, which will work continuously in conjunction with an on land selection plant, is being shipped together with a comprehensive dredger/booster spare parts package.

Both the dredger and booster station have been designed to fit into containers for ease of sea and overland transport.
