Picture of the Day: Dredger ‘J.F.J. De Nul’

Today we are bringing you this beautiful photo of Jan De Nul’s cutter suction dredger J.F.J. De Nul, built by IHC Holland’s Kinderdijk yard.

This dredger is the most powerful vessel of its type in the world.

The cutter suction dredgers (CSD) are equipped with a rotating cutter head cutting hard soil into fragments.

The cut soil is then sucked in by dredge pumps. These dredgers are mostly stationary suction dredgers that cut the soil according to a pre-set profile. In other words, the vessel does not sail during dredging activities.

The material is then pumped ashore using pumps and a floating pipeline or loaded into a split hopper barge moored alongside, which in turn can then offload the dredge sediment at the set location.

Larger cutter suction dredgers are self-propelled which means that they can sail autonomously.

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.
