Dredge Yard delivered a multipurpose cutter suction dredger ECO 200 to a real estate developer in the United Arab Emirates for the reshaping and maintenance of existing islands.

The dredger, delivered completely assembled and launched into the water by mobile crane, will be used for connecting some of the islands and deepening the sea entrance between the islands.

Due to current and erosion, the coast of the islands changes with the years. For this reason, it is necessary to perform periodical maintenance to keep the shape of the islands and maintain its beaches. In some areas the beach is flooded by new soft types of sand that makes it difficult for visitors to enjoy the clear waters of the Emirates. In other places it is necessary to maintain the water depth for yachts and workboats to visit the area.

The ECO 200 dredger is equipment with a heavy-duty cutter head and underwater dredge pump for high performance and for pumping a high-density mixture of sand. For easy mobilization the dredger is provided with two hydraulic propulsions. The ECO 200 Cutter Suction Dredger can pump the sand up to 1,500m and dredge up to 6 meters depth. The ECO dredger can be deployed for dredging in small and shallow areas that are difficult for bigger dredgers to enter; its draft is 0.7m.
