CEMEX Go Innovation to Include the SlurryPro Pumps

Atlantic Pumps Ltd. announced recently that a new multi-million pound marine aggregates dredger will include two of their built-up SlurryPro 6×4 centrifugal pumps.

The CEMEX UK Marine dredger, which has recently been named ‘CEMEX Go Innovation’, is being built by the Dutch conglomerate Damen Shipyards Group.

The vessel is the first in the next generation of environmentally designed dredgers and is designed to extract sand and gravel from the sea bed up to depths of 55 meters, including in the challenging conditions experienced in the North Sea.

Atlantic Pumps’ Business Development Manager Ryan Hall commented, “Damen were particularly taken with the wear life achieved by SlurryPro pumps and the fact that Atlantic Pumps are the preferred pump supplier to CEMEX in the UK.”

Previous experience of supplying pumps to dredgers in the same application in the UK also allowed us to guide Damen in their choosing of the pumps” said Ryan. “SlurryPro pumps can be found on a number of dredgers in the UK including the Southampton-based vessel ‘Clarissa’ which is owned by Aggregate Industries and on a vessel owned by CEMEX UK Marine – also based in Southampton.

Talking about the inclusion of the two 6×4 SlurryPro pumps on the marine aggregates dredger, Atlantic Pumps’ Managing Director Andy Smith said “As CEMEX’s key pump partner in the UK it is fantastic to have been able to be part of one their largest investments of recent years. It is a demonstration of the benefits of our global reach and being able to support their ongoing needs – ensuring minimal downtime with our rapid spares backup.”

The delivery of the ‘CEMEX Go Innovation’ has been scheduled for late 2019.
