DOP Submersible dredge pumps

About Damen Dredging Equipment

DOP submersible dredge pumps are compact multifunctional dredging pumps, dedicated to slurry transport. The DOP has a wear-resistant, hydraulically or electrically driven dredge pump at its heart, made of wear resistant cast parts. The heavy duty design of the slurry pump ensures low maintenance and maximum uptime.

The large spherical passage of the impeller ensures a high operational efficiency.

Damen has delivered DOP dredge pumps to contractors around the world for many decades. The wide variety of jobs done by the DOP submersible dredge pump is a proof of its versatility: adding a different suction head results in completely different job.

These jobs range from maintenance dredging, dredging in restricted areas when for instance creating a tunnel bed, to sand mining and environmental dredging jobs.

The DOP dredge pump concept is not new. It has been designed in the early 1990s by Damen Dredging Equipment together with dredging contractor Ballast Nedam. The combination of the Damen dredge pumps together with the day to day experience in the dredging field of Ballast Nedam has resulted in a compact dredging tool that fits in every corner.

The DOP design has evolved the past decades in a heavy duty, fit for purpose dredging tool.

Recently the latest generation of DOP pumps was launched, integrating new practical features. More types were added to the range for more versatility.
