Damen Delivers DOP Pump to Cadzand Dredging Project

Damen Dredging Equipment has delivered DOP submersible dredge pump to the Cadzand dredging project in the Netherlands.

The dredging scheme, being undertaken by the Dutch contractor Martens & Van Oord, has quite a challenge in store – unexploded ordnance (UXO).

The village of Cadzand is located in the south west of the Netherlands, on the shores of the North Sea.

“Its old marina entrance needed to be updated and the harbor was to be deepened. Not a simple job taking into account that conventional Second World War explosives were hidden in the seabed. Martens & Van Oord was up for the job – using a DOP submersible dredge pump in the process,” Damen said.

The DOP350 was attached to one of Martens & Van Oord’s pontoon-based excavators.

The DOP pumped the bottom material – sand and occasionally UXOs – to a reinforced screening installation.

From there, another Damen pump was used to bring the screened sand further to replenish the nearby shores.

Damen has just released this very interesting video about the Cadzand dredging scheme:
