Posted October 1, 2019

We are proud that CDC Dredging L.L.C. has awarded a contract for the design and delivery of a customized Cutter Suction dredger ECO 300 to Dredge Yard. CDC Dredging is a dredging company based in the United Arab Emirates and mainly operating in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC). The company purchased a new cutter dredger in order to participate in challenging projects involving hard soil.

Cutter Dredger with Customized design

Typically, dredging hard materials requires powerful, large and heavy dredging equipment. However, our client specified a request for a powerful, but easily transportable and compact cutter dredger design. As a result, we will customize our dismountable cutter suction dredger ECO 300 to meet the client’s needs for additional cutting power.

We are planning to use this unique, newly designed and built, dismountable dredger with 120 kW cutter power to execute all 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” says Dr. Samer Kelani, Chief Executive Officer, CDC Dredging L.L.C.

Extra cutting power

Our Cutter Suction ECO 300 is a shallow draft dredger transportable by truck. Besides these features, we will customize the dredger with increased total installed power (Caterpillar C18 engine in place of the standard C13). We will also mount a hydraulic, rotary drum cutter head supplied by a collaborating company from Germany. Finally, we will extend the cutter dredger ECO 300 standard dredging depth of 6m to 12m for canal deepening projects. Our team created this customized design according to client requirements for extra powerful cutting performance.

Dredger assembly and testing in Dubai

Upon our client’s request, we will assemble and functionally test the dredger in our facility in Dubai. This will make the entire process easily accessible to the client. Furthermore, it allows for more convenient, quicker transport to the destination in UAE, when the dredger is finished.
