New Dragflow Dredge for Nigeria (VIDEO)

Dragflow, an Italian manufacturer of heavy duty pumps and complete dredging equipment, has successfully delivered a new cutter suction dredge to a customer in Nigeria.

The DRH400E35DF model dredge was ordered by Matag, a Nigerian dredging company that wanted to increase the scope of their business and to ensure a year-round ability for dredging and reclamation services along the Niger River.

With a previously owned cutter suction dredge that had a digging limit of approximately 10-12m, the company was limited just to the seasonal dredging.

The Niger River is known to rise as much as 8m during the wet season, especially when dams are opened on the Benue River (Garouwa, Cameroon) and the Kainji Dam in Niger State.

Because of this, Matag needed a dredge that could work continuously through the season.

For the purpose, Dragflow supplied Matag with the dredge configured to reach a depth of 35m and equipped with Dragflow HY400 submersible pump.
