Damen Delivers Dredger Within 3 Days

Damen delivers stock CSD450 within 3 working days on site

On Monday the 19th of September, a Damen CSD450 started winning sand at the Frisian motorway project contractor Van der Lee is working on. The ink on the sales contract was not even dry yet – it being signed on Thursday only. The stock dredger was prepared for transport on Friday and towed to the north of the Netherlands over the weekend, so that it could make a flying start on the Monday.

The stationary dredger, type CSD450, is a standard Damen dredger. Various types of these standard dredgers are readily available from stock. They are prepared for customisation through standard options, and can leave Damen’s Nijkerk yard in a very short time span – as was the case in this flash of lightning action for contractor Van der Lee.

It will mine sand at a dredging depth between -2 m and – 6m, pumping it over a max distance of 6.5 kms using 3 booster stations – all equipped with Damen dredge pumps.
