Dredging up the future with Maritime & Ports

Dredging up the future

General Manager of Dredge Yard, Basel Yousef, shares with Maritime & Ports his perspective on the future of the dredging market.  In addition he explains what led to a growing demand of dredge equipment in the Middle East.

He believes that as a dredging equipment supplier, Dredge Yard has been quick to capitalize on the growing demand in the Middle East and set up its Dubai office a couple of years ago to better serve the region.

Dredging future

New projects have been launched in Middle East recently while other ports have got extensions or modifications. The huge size of those projects requires the biggest size dredgers deployed by local and abroad contractors.

He also adds that in recent future a lot of new systems have been established to prevent pollution. Here is the case of greaseless ball joint, the latest development of Dredge Yard, which connects the long and heavy dredging pipes together without the need of grease that spills out in the water.
