Rohr-Idreco Dredge Systems Europe has signed a long-term contract with a sand and gravel company in Germany to deliver and operate a 52 meter digging depth electric dredger where it will be paid on a per tonnage basis.
This arrangement will enable the client to optimize and fix its costs, converting a substantial fixed cost into a variable cost.
According to the Rohr-Idreco’s official statement, this deal also leaves the client free to focus on process areas of strength and mitigate risks in other areas.
Such contracts are part of R-I’s long term strategy, said Rohr-Idreco.

Managing Director, Fulco Vrooland, added that “It is a real coup for us to attract someone with Thomas’s skills and experience; he will be a great addition to our team.”
