DOP Submersible dredge pumps

DOP350L as package delivery for locally built dredger

PROJECT SUMMARY

Location: Reservoir in the Andes mountains, Peru

Period : started Q4,2015 – ongoing

Product type : DOP350L with sand mining head

Contractor : Mar & Ter SAS, Colombia

The complete package delivery also included discharge piping and dredging instrumentation. As a result the components were swiftly assembled and the dredger was started up without delay.

High up in the Andes mountains, a reservoir is slowly silting up. The only solution to this is maintenance dredging – but at a rather important depth. For this, a DOP dredger was built. As the submersible dredge pump, type DOP350L, can be lowered on a cable to any depth, the entire reservoir can be covered.

Together with a DOP350L, a complete package was delivered for a dredger to be built locally. The pontoon was made high up in the Andes, and it was fitted out with the Damen dredging gear. The package delivery included apart from the submersed dredge pump the A frame incl winch, a diesel-hydraulic power pack, a jetpack and the expertise to assemble a good dredger.

The Dop Dredger will use the DOP350L to clean up the silted reservoir.
