Dredge Yard has won a contract for the design and delivery of a customized cutter suction dredger ECO 300 to CDC Dredging L.L.C. – a company based in the UAE and mainly operating in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC).

As reported, the company is purchasing the new dredger in order to participate in challenging projects involving hard soil.

We are planning to use this unique, newly designed and built, dismountable dredger with 120 kW cutter power to execute challenging projects with hard soil, in locations where big dredgers, with similar power, could not reach, or could not be financially suitable to execute such projects” said Dr. Samer Kelani, Chief Executive Officer, CDC Dredging L.L.C.

The standard dredger will be boosted with a bigger Caterpillar engine (Caterpillar C18 engine in place of the standard C13) and a special cutter head for enhanced cutting power of hard materials.

Also, the ECO 300 standard dredging depth of 6-8m will be extended to 12m for canal deepening projects.

Upon CDC Dredging request, the dredger will be assembled and functionally tested in Dredge Yard’s Dubai facility and commissioned on project site.
