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.
