Italdraghe Harvester on Its Way to Kenya

The latest Italdraghe acquatic weed harvester is now on its way to Kenya.

Destined to be used to remove the mats of hyacinth and hippo grass that have been steadily taking over the waters of Lake Victoria, the harvester will be based in the city of Kisumu.

The harvester, doubly certified by both the Italian Naval Registry (RINA) and Bureau Veritas (BV),  was recently inspected in the Italdraghe shipyard by a team of Kenyan government officials who gave the go ahead for its immediate shipment.

Once on site in Kisumu, the harvester will be assembled and commissioned by Italdraghe technicians who will also provide a thorough training course for the local operators who will be responsible for the long-term use and maintenance of the vessel.
