Dredge Yard Delivers One to UAE

Dredge Yard recently delivered a multipurpose cutter suction dredger ECO 200 to a real estate developer in the United Arab Emirates for the reshaping and maintenance of existing islands.

As reported, the ECO 200 dredger will be used for connecting some of the islands and deepening the sea entrance between the islands.

Due to the currents and erosion, the coast of the islands changes with the years. For this reason, it is necessary to perform periodical maintenance to keep the shape of the islands and maintain a pleasant beach, said Dredge Yard in the release.

The ECO 200 dredger is equipped with a heavy-duty cutter head and underwater dredge pump for high performance and for pumping a high-density mixture of sand.

According to the company, the high dredging performance will speed up the dredging process to limit the time involved.

The ECO 200 Cutter Suction Dredger can pump the sand up to 1500m and dredge up to 6 meters depth. One of the advantages of the ECO dredger is the use for dredging in small and shallow areas that are difficult for bigger dredgers to enter. The draft of the ECO dredger is only 0.7m.

Dredge Yard also added that this multipurpose cutter suction dredger was delivered completely assembled and launched into the water by mobile crane.
