The 11-metre vessel will be capable of sand and silt extraction and reservoir cleanup works. It is amphibious and can independently enter and exit the water without the help of third-party means.

According to Stapel, the cleanup operations will be possible even on dry soil. The maximum dredging depth is rated at 6 metres.

The dredger is designed to be easily disassembled, transported by road or rail, and re-assembled on-site.

The main purpose of the vessel is to carry out dredging works, clean up reservoirs, extract sand and silt (up to category III according to FER-2001-01), using a replaceable set of working devices.
