Damen Works on Dredging Installation for New CEMEX Dredger

Transport of both overflows to be delivered to the building yard Damen Shipyards Mangalia, Romania

Damen Dredging Equipment is busy working on the dredging installation for the marine aggregate dredger for CEMEX.

The impressive £30 million dredger, type MAD3500, 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.

The dredger 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.

During the keel-laying ceremony in October 2018, 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 is scheduled for the late 2019.
