Damen delivers stock CSD450 within 3 working days on site

On the 19th of September 2016, a Damen CSD450 started winning sand at the Frisian motorway project contractor Van der Lee is working on (Fig.). The stock dredger was prepared for transport on Friday and towed to the north of the Netherlands over the weekend, so that it could make a flying start on the Monday. The stationary dredger, type CSD450, is a standard Damen dredger. Various types of these standard dredgers are readily available from stock. They are prepared for customisation through standard options, and can leave Damen’s Nijkerk yard in a very short time span - as was the case in this flash of lightning action for contractor Van der Lee.

The Dutch contractor Van der Lee is currently working on the motorway fly-over project near Joure, in the north of the Netherlands. This Damen CSD450 is their first stationary dredger. It will mine sand at a dredging depth between -2 m and -6 m, pumping it over a max distance of 6.5 km using 3 booster stations – all equipped with Damen dredge pumps. The Damen Field service crew commissioned the CSD450 Monday on site, and the dredger has been producing plenty of sand since.
