At the Port of Corinto, on Nicaragua’s Pacific Coast, a DOP Submersible Dredge Pump 150 has started on a capital dredging project.
The municipality of Corinto has decided to build a wave barrier that will protect the town against the wave intrusion.
The delivered DOP150 is equipped with a cutter unit, and has been attached to a crane. The DOP will mine sand near shore, to a max dredging depth of 6 m.
The dredged mixture will be pumped into geotubes that will create an artificial lagoon.
Damen delivered a turn key dredging package enabling immediate start up on location. This package includes the DOP150 with cutter unit, hydraulic hoses, as well as discharge piping for the dredged mixture.
