Customized dredging system for TSHD

Dredge Yard TSHD dredging system

Dredge Yard delivered a new customized dredging system for a trailing suction hopper dredger. The system consists of several components, such as dredge valves with inspection holes on both sides. The delivered dredge pumps are suitable for pumping and handling all slurry, mud, sand, gravel, rocks and debris. We also incorporated our turning glands with an adjustable turning range by using dismountable stoppers.

As you can see on our project page, we designed a new customized wear resistant steel loading box for the trailing suction hopper dredger. This way, the slurry can easily be pumped into the hopper for transport. Our hopper overflow drains the excess water, making it more efficient, because it leaves more room for the payload.

Of course this dredging system would not be complete without a drag head with jet water nozzles, suction arm and gantry. Dredge Yard also provided bow couplings, a sliding piece and bottom doors.
