Damen DOP200 Successfully Completes Kazakhstanian Job
Damen’s DOP Submersible Dredge Pump 200 was recently used to complete an offshore trenching job in Kazakhstan.
The project, undertaken by the Turkish company ENKA, included the removal of some 90.000m³ of in situ material.
“The removed soil included sand and clay. A cutter unit was fixed to the DOP200 for the job,” Damen said in its announcement.
At an offshore location a trench was dredged by using an excavator-mounted DOP submersible dredge pump.
The excavator, located on a pontoon, lowered the submersible dredge pump to a dredging depth of -6.3m to complete the task.
