Damen Shipyards Mangalia, Romania, recently held a keel-laying ceremony for the Marine Aggregate Dredger (MAD) ‘CEMEX Go Innovation’.

The keel laying ceremony involved three coins, a UK £1, a Dutch GUILDER and a Romanian LEU being welded into the keel of the new dredger.

Mark Williams, Fleet Engineering Manager, CEMEX Marine had the honor of performing the welding of the coins.

The new £30 million dredger is designed to extract sand and gravel from the sea bed at depths of up to -55 meters, including in the challenging conditions of the North Sea.

‘CEMEX Go Innovation’ will have a radical and innovative design which will bring new standards of environmental performance and cost efficiency, not only to the CEMEX marine fleet but will set a high standard for the rest of the industry.

Kurt Cowdery, Director CEMEX Marine Aggregates, said: “This is a fantastic investment for the future, allowing us to safely source the materials that we need and enabling us to develop and grow in the UK & Europe.”

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