Damen AKF Tailor-Made Anchors for Belgian Dredger

When a Belgium-based dredging company required two anchors of a type not commonly available, they knew where to turn.

Theo Kloosterman, Manager of Damen Anchor & Chain Factory (AKF), takes up the story: “The client was looking for two High Holding Power NAF type anchors, for their dredging vessel. This is a comparable anchor to our AC-14 – which we keep in stock – but it’s wider and has shorter flukes. Actually, you don’t tend to see many NAF anchors at all.

In fact, AKF does not keep NAF type anchors as a stock item. However, being well positioned within the industry, AKF knew where to source such anchors and were able to deliver them tailored exactly to the client’s specific needs.

Mr Kloosterman explained: “The swivel that was needed for this particular project was shorter, more compact than standard swivel forerunners.” The customer required AKF to deliver the anchors with a customized swivel mounted directly on the anchor stock.

Speaking of the successful completion of the job, Mr Kloosterman said: ”We were pleased to be able to serve our customers in their quest for this very specific type of anchor.
