Wagenborg Transports CSD Mangystau to Kazakhstan

After the successful transport of the dismountable cutter suction dredger “Ural River” from Nijkerk, the Netherlands, to Kazakhstan, in early 2015, Wagenborg was asked to transport an identical dredger, named “Mangystau”.

The vessel will be transported from Nijkerk to Bautino in Kazakhstan.

Mangystau is a customized Damen CSD 650 dredger and can be partly dismounted for transport.

The heaviest part, weighing 138 tonnes, is the main pontoon. Besides the main pontoon there are several smaller pontoons, two spud poles, a cutter ladder with cutting unit and a few 40’ containers with small parts, making a total of 24 items.

The transport started in the first week of January. First stage will be the transport of all items by river vessels and Wagenborg Nedlift trucks from Nijkerk to Rotterdam, where the components will be assembled.

In Rotterdam all of the parts will be loaded on a Wagenborg Shipping Ice runner type vessel for onward transport of the dredger to St Petersburg, Russia.

Wagenborg said that undoubtedly the most challenging part of the project is the stretch from St Petersburg to Kazakhstan over a distance of almost 3,000 km.

Upon arrival in Bautino the dredger will be assembled.
