For this project, HollandMT supplied the complete dredging system, including:

  • DN500 dragarm system,
  • dredge-pump,
  • jetwater system,
  • dredge-pipes with bow-coupling,
  • hopper discharge system (bottom-doors).

Dredging trials were successfully carried out near Le Grau-du-Roi, including shore discharge pumping test.

According to HollandMT, La-Region Occitanie will manage and operate the new dredger.
