Dragflow has recently delivered a remote controlled dredge for the Marina Sveva harbor dredging project in Italy.
Due to the sea currents caused by a dam, too much sedimentation occurred inside the harbor.
Also, the seabed was frequently raised, causing navigational problems for the boaters accessing the harbor.
Dragflow solution included a remote controlled dredge (DRP18), equipped with a dredging pump (EL 12.5S), with an output of about 70 mc/h of mixture.
“The beauty of Dragflow remote controlled dredges is that once the area is identified, the operator can safely move the dredge from the quay, by using a remote radio control, controlling both the dredger movement and the pump, also in its vertical movement,” Elisa Innocenti, Dragflow Marketing Manager, said.
The project target is to keep the seabed controlled by transferring the exceeded sand material to a distance of approximately 150 meters.
