Russia to Develop Robotized Dredger

Robotized dredger is to be designed in Russia, according to Mikhail Chemodanov, Technical Director of Nonius Engineering Ltd.

The statement was made yesterday during the Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging Congress in Moscow, which is organized by media group PortNews.

A pumping dredger is the first to be automated,” said Mr Chemodanov. “Russia’s know-how in this sphere is sufficient to be put into practice. Among the advantages of the robotized dredger he mentioned the reduction of operational costs related to personnel, among disadvantages – the need for investments and a risk of program errors.”

The expert emphasized that that this technology can be applied to integrate unmanned dredgers into an intelligent network, ‘an ecosystem’.

According to Mr Chemodanov, automated modules can be manufactured separately from vessels to ensure their operational flexibility.
