Damen CSD500 Ready for Algerian Job

The Damen Field Service crew has just returned from the commissioning of Barracuda cutter suction dredger in Algeria.

The customized Damen cutter suction dredger CSD500 has been delivered with a complete dredging package including a booster station and dredge piping enabling immediate start up.

The dredger will perform maintenance dredging in a reservoir, at an inland location in Algeria.

As the reservoir dredging jobs can be quite a challenge, the standard dismountable CSD500 has been customized.

That’s why the CSD500 has been fitted out with a longer cutter ladder for the important dredging depth of -18m working at 45°.

Moreover the spuds, normally a distinct feature of any CSD, have been replaced by an X-mas tree. The X-mas tree is a multiple wire-based mooring system independent of the deep waters in which the dredger operates.

The Algerian customer Hydrodragage has two other Damen dredgers performing similar tasks at other reservoirs.
