Damen Delivers Multi Cat 1908 to Murjan Al-Sharq

Damen Shipyards Group has delivered a Multi Cat 1908 to Murjan Al-Sharq Marine Services.

Adding shallow-water dredging capacity to the abilities of this already multi-faceted platform, Damen has fitted the vessel out with a Damen DOP Submersible Dredge Pump 250.

Murjan Al-Sharq Marine Services is based in Saudi Arabia. The company provides marine construction and maintenance, dredging, diving and subsea services.

The company’s new vessel, called Murjan 40, has been equipped with a Damen DOP 250. This submersible dredge pump has a 1,250 m³/h capacity and can be deployed for sand mining and maintenance dredging activities, Damen said.

Speaking at the vessel handover at Damen Shipyards Hardinxveld, Chairman of Murjan Al-Sharq Marine Services, Abdullah Natheer, said: “By adding a DOP pump to a Multi Cat, we instantly have a dredger – but a dredger which can also undertake the full range of tasks the Multi Cat can do as well.” 

The Murjan 40 has also been installed with a spud system that can be deployed in water depths of up to 10 meters. This will make dredging operations considerably more straightforward as this removes the need for a complex, 4-point mooring system.

For operations in deeper waters, the spud system can be extended.

Shallow water solution

Dredging operations will be accomplished by lowering the DOP pump into the water with the Multi Cat’s crane or A-frame.

The crane will also be used to handle the spuds.

With the vessel’s first contracts already finalized, Mr Natheer pointed to the benefits of combining the shallow draught of the Multi Cat with the dredging performance of the DOP pump.

“Shallow water dredging usually requires a lot of very sophisticated, expensive equipment. A solution such as this represents a cost-effective alternative,” concluded Mr Natheer.
