DOP Submersible dredge pumps

DOP200 used for filling Geotubes

PROJECT SUMMARY

Location: Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Period : Q4,2015

Product type : DOP dredge pump 200 with barge unloading head

Contractor : Allonda Brazil

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a DOP200 was used to empty a carousel of silt and sand-filled barges.

In Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a DOP200 was used to empty a carousel of silt and sand-filled barges. The DOP200 submersed dredge pump was fixed to the boom of a pontoon-based excavator. The excavator supplied the DOP with its required hydraulic power, thus forming a compact, closed system.

The DOP submersible dredge pump discharged on shore into Geotubes. These Geotubes are textile containers to which the DOPs discharge piping can be coupled easily. The dredged material is captured in the Geotubes, the water flows out.

Discharging barges using a DOP Submersible Dredge Pump 200

The DOP submersible dredge pump is often used as an efficient tool to unload barges. The key factor is the supply of sufficient pressurized jetwater acting as cutting medium and transport water at the same time.
