Dredge Yard delivered a multipurpose cutter suction dredger ECO 200 to a real estate developer in the United Arab Emirates for the reshaping and maintenance of existing islands.
The ECO 200 dredger will be used for connecting some of the islands and deepening the sea entrance between the islands.
Due to current and erosion, the coast of the islands changes with the years. For this reason, it is necessary to perform periodical maintenance to keep the shape of the islands and maintain a pleasant beach.
In some areas the beach is flooded by new soft types of sand that makes it difficult for visitors to enjoy the beautiful clear waters of the Emirates.
In other places it is necessary to maintain the water depth for yachts and workboats to visit the area. Dredging is the only way to maintain artificial and natural shaped islands and beaches.

Heavy duty cutter head
The ECO 200 dredger is equipment with a heavy-duty cutter head and underwater dredge pump for high performance and for pumping a high-density mixture of sand.
The high dredging performance will speed up the dredging process to limit the time involved in maintenance.
For easy mobilization the dredger is provided with two hydraulic propulsions.
Small shallow waters
The ECO 200 Cutter Suction Dredger can pump the sand up to 1500m and dredge up to 6 meters depth.
One of the advantages of the ECO dredger is the use for dredging in small and shallow areas that are difficult for bigger dredgers to enter. The draft of the ECO dredger is only 0.7m.
