This cutter suction dredger is therefore designed to pump and discharge materials 150 mm in diameter at a distance of 300 meters.

The concept of the SEEM 16-640ST cutter suction dredger allows her use on different localisations. It can also be transported by road on a different operating area because she can be taken to pieces.
