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.
