Damen has delivered their Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) 450 to Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy in Finland.

This is the first time that a Damen CSD has been deployed in the Scandinavian market, the company said.

Olivier Marcus, Damen Product Director Dredging, said: “We are delighted to have had a breakthrough with the first CSD in the region. Scandinavia is traditionally a ‘backhoe market’, where pontoons with cranes are used and the dredged material is loaded into barges.”

The new dredger was delivered in only a few weeks from stock and has been put to work straight away in the Port of Pori, where it is dredging at a depth of 4.5 meters.

Continuous production

The Damen CSD450, which can dredge up to 14 metres deep, offers Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy the advantage that it has continuous production via the CSD’s pipeline to the designated disposal areas.

A Damen CSD is suited to ports and rivers that have a lot siltation and stones, and it is also a robust machine, well able to operate in harsher, icy conditions. These dredgers are also active in the Arctic, Canada and Russia.

Dismountable

“All the Damen cutter suction dredgers are dismountable, so it is easy to transport them. In this case the dredger could be transported to Finland in a very short time and when this job is completed it can easily be transported to the next project,” added Olivier Marcus.

Damen has previously delivered two DOP pumps to Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy.
