Damen delivers Cutter Suction Dredger to Vesirakennus in Finland

In December 2017 Damen has delivered a Cutter Suction Dredger 450 to Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy in Finland. This is the first time a Damen Cutter Suction Dredger has been deployed in the Scandinavian market.

The new dredger was delivered in only a few weeks from stock and has been put to work straight away in the Port of Pori, where it is dredging at a depth of 4.5m.

Olivier Marcus, Damen Product Director Dredging, commented: “We are delighted to have had a breakthrough with the first CSD in the region. Scandinavia is traditionally a ‘backhoe market’, where pontoons with cranes are used and the dredged material is loaded into barges.”

The Damen CSD450, which can dredge up to 14m deep, offers Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy the advantage that it has continuous production via the CSD’s pipeline to the designated disposal areas, he added.

A Damen CSD is suited to ports and rivers that have a lot siltation and stones, and it is also a robust machine, well able to operate in harsher, icy conditions. These dredgers are also active in the Arctic, Canada and Russia.

A major reason Vesirakennus Ojanen Oy chose a Damen CSD450 was because it was available directly from stock and could be delivered in just a few weeks. Sami Ojanen, owner and director, comments on why the company chose the new Damen CSD: “Our company saw the CSD450 as the perfect fit technically and because of Damen’s technical support. The increased pumping distance provided by the new dredger also enables us to expand the range of the projects we can carry out.”
