The Marine Group expands its fleet with new dredger

With a busy year under their belt during 2021, The Marine Group’s Harbour Management department is continuing to expand their dredging fleet with a third vessel.

The latest addition – Doonhamer – is the largest in their fleet and can operate as either a water injection dredger or a plough dredger.

At 14.6 meters in length and weighing 55 tonnes, she is mobilised by water and boasts full crew accommodation on board.

Commenting the latest news, Rob Freemantle, Operations Director, said: “We are delighted to be able to increase our dredging capacity even further with the addition of Doonhamer to the fleet.”

“Adding plough dredging to our capabilities broadens the type of work we are able to carry out as well as the additional benefits from having a larger vessel in operation.”
