44-day dredger delivery

From contract signature, outfitted, inspected and delivered from the yard to its final destination in Kuwait, has all happened in just 44 days for a new Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD).

Damen has delivered the CSD650 to HAC Cranes for an end user in Kuwait. The stationary dredger, named GD4000, after some modification work and the installation of some extra onboard options, will go into operation with Gulf Dredging.

The CSD650 was built on speculation at Damen Albwardy’s shipyard in Sharjah, Dubai. It had just been added to the dredger stock and so was available for immediate delivery. When the customer expressed the requirement for an immediately available stationary dredger, the CSD650 was put forward and, with the contract signed, customisation began using options also available in stock. In order to meet the challenging timing regarding logistics and supply, the parties collaborated successfully to arrange for the final customisation and installation work to be completed in Kuwait after delivery.

This customisation process included adding an anchor boom installation, a deck crane and a dredging instrumentation package. Additional navigation and communication equipment was added at the customer’s request. The CSD650 is designed to pump up to 7,000 m3/h at a maximum dredging depth of around 18 metres.

“This large dredger has been delivered incredibly fast,” Mr Boran Bekbulat, Regional Sales Director, underlines. “Due to the remarkable cooperation between all parties involved, who were all energized by the urgent requirement for the dredger, all phases of the delivery process went smoothly. The dredger was even towed to Kuwait by the end user itself in record time.”

“The extraordinary timeline of the delivery process has just established another milestone,” adds Boran Bekbulat. “The cooperation between all the parties involved was spectacular. We trust that the CSD 650 will meet HAC Cranes’ expectations and that the end user, Gulf Dredging, a regional leader in marine and civil construction, dredging and other offshore works, will find it to be a significant asset for itself and its customers."
