Mercator Limited, an Indian marine and energy group, is expanding their dredging business by adding two more dredgers to its fleet.
Mercator has taken delivery of two European built dredgers; the first one is a trailer suction hopper dredger which will be one of the largest capacity dredgers in India, and the second one is a bucket ladder dredger.
Both these dredgers will be commissioned in September this year.
This acquisition substantially enhances the capacity and capability of Mercator to serve the coastal dredging activities at major and minor ports of India.
With the addition of these two dredgers, Mercator’s fleet has grown to nine dredgers, making it the second largest dredging company in India. Mercator’s dredger fleet is currently deployed on its long term contracts.
