For removing sand and larger debris along a newly built quay wall, a DOP Submersible Dredge Pump 250 has been fitted out with a customised drag head. The head is fitted out with a pressure balanced hydraulic cylinder to enable the contractor to vary the pressure on the bottom.

The drag head, fitted out with a grid to prevent large stones or debris to enter the process, is directly connected to the dredge pump through a rubber hose.
