VIDEO: Damen Dredge Pump Working in Brazil
Damen Dredging Equipment, offering a complete range of heavy-duty and cost-effective submersible dredge pumps, has just released a video about its DOP submersible dredge pump emptying concrete caissons in Brazil.
These compact DOP pumps are directly powered by a hydraulic motor, mounted in a protective casing.
The pioneering system of using concrete caissons for artificial breakwaters required the use of a DOP250.
This Damen submersible dredge pump removed all sand from the narrow caissons – showing its added value as a dredge pump fitting in a confined space yet pumping the sand away over important discharge distances.
