Dredge Yard builds ECO200 dredger in stock

Dredge Yard built the ECO200 dredger in stock as part of a program for building several medium size and small dredgers in stock. We can equip the dredger with a cutter head, plain suction dredge or an auger head. These various options make the ECO200 a very versatile dredger. Using an underwater heavy-duty dredge pump can extend the dredging depth. A hydraulic drive controls and drives the heavy-duty dredge pump.

Easily transportable

The entire dredger fits inside standard containers for safe and cost-effective transport to any port in the world. Dredge Yard experts or the clients technical staff can assemble the dredge on site. The ECO200 is designed for one operation and can be easy controlled from the air-conditioned cabin. The underwater dredge pump provides a high ratio of mixture and increased slurry flow that optimizes the production output. The dredger is available for use in May 2017.

Dredge Valve production by Dredge Yard

Dredge Yard recently delivered dredge valves of sizes 600, 700 and 750 mm internal diameter. The valves are needed for the discharge pipeline on board of two trailing suction hopper dredgers. Fabrication was done in-house at Dredge Yard’s production facilities.

Dredge valve fabrication

The body of the dredge valve was fabricated from high tensile steel and the valve’s gate is made of corrosion resistant and hardened steel, protecting it against the rust and wear. For conservation of the outer surface of the valve a high quality marine type paint was applied to protect it against corrosion.

These types of dredge valves can be produced for three different working duties varying between 10, 20 and 30 bar according to the customer’s requirements and applications.

Customized dredging components delivered to Bahrain

Dredge Yard designed customized dredging components according to the customer’s existing dredger. This way all parts fit on the current dredging pipes and machinery. Our experts worked 24/7 to realize fast delivery. They also provided high quality castings, machining, welding, testing and inspections. Bahrain is located in the heart of Arabian Gulf. And it has become famous for undertaking massive dredging and land reclamation projects.

Manufacturing customized dredging components

Dredge Yards facilities in the United Arab Emirates manufactured all parts. As a result, the delivery time to Bahrain is much shorter. From there the parts are transported by trucks.

Dredge Yard is located across several countries. The company dedicates itself to the engineering, consulting and production of dredgers, dredging components, equipment and technologies.

Dredge Yard delivers heavy duty dredge ball joints to Van Oord

The dredge ball joints for Van Oord are suitable for pipes with an inner diameter of 900mm. They handle a working pressure up to 30 bar. The components are of a heavy-duty design for pumping water and sand for long distances. Dredge Yard tested the dredge ball joints in its special equipped facilities in Turkey, to assure high quality. The ball joints underwent thorough hydrostatic testing. Then they were tilted by hydraulic force to simulate working environments.

Heavy duty testing

Dredge Yard’s team of engineers managed and controlled the entire production and testing. They therefore relied upon their vast experience in casting, machining, assembly, testing and inspections.

All ball joints were delivered by trucks directly from Dredge Yard’s facilities in Turkey to Van Oord in the Netherlands, to ensure shortest delivery time.

Dredging components production facility opened

Production facility

The new dredging components production facilities are managed by Dredge Yard’s subsidiary Dredge Yard Makina San. Tic. LTD.ŞTI recently registered in The Republic of Turkey.

This is part of the Dredge Yard’s expansion plan for the production and assembly of several dredging components like ball joints, pumps, valves, turning glands, bow couplings and a lot of other dredging equipment needed for the dredgers and dredge pipe lines.

Dredge Yard Makina

Dredge Yard Makina San. Tic. LTD.ŞTI is located in the city Izmit of Kocaeli, surrounded by an industrial area including for heavy steel industry.

Dredge Yard Makina in collaboration with its partners in Turkey will be utilized for the production, assembly and quality control of all dredge components, using latest casting and machining technologies.

As part of the development of the new production facilities, Dredge Yard Makina has acquired special equipment to enhance its capability for higher production rate.

These new facilities will allow Dredge Yard to accommodate the rapidly growing demand of dredge related products with a high ratio of reliability and value for money.

Wide range of dredge ball joints introduced by Dredge Yard

Dredge Ball Joints

Dredge Yard, the provider and manufacturer of dredging equipment, has now introduced a very wide range of dredge ball joints engineered and developed in Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

In order to provide customer with the best suitable solution and lowest cost, Dredge Yard specialists designed the dredge ball joints in 6 different types, giving variations of tilting angle from 15 to 18 degrees and duties for operating from 10 bar to 30 bar. The materials used for the production depends on each part of the dredge ball joints. Because the case and the ball need a high elongation and impact value, cast iron of a manganese alloy is used. The material needs for the gland are cast iron of a chromium, nickel and molybdenum alloy that provides a high tensile strength, high yield point and high hardness values. For wear resistant properties of the liner, ductile manganese iron or hard chromium iron is used.

Production

The production of dredge ball joints is done at a high quality and experienced foundry with the latest production facilities to ensure high quality casting and quick delivery time. To ensure that all parts are identical and interchangeable, the patterns are made from aluminum or hard wood. All castings of dredge ball joint are heat treated according to ISO and ASTM standards and they are measured and tested before machining. After machining and before releasing for the transport, all the products are measured and tested again. During and after production all products undergo a systematically testing including chemical composition and mechanical properties test, measurement test of all dimensions after casting, ultra sonic test, magnetic particle test, surface roughness test and dye penetrant inspection for critical parts, measurement test of all dimensions after machining, hardness test, assembly and interchange ability test, and visual inspection for all parts.

Dredge Yard management has related that: “All measurements and tests are recorded in our database and our customers are welcome to witness any test in our production facilities”. Dredge Yard also offers the opportunity of choosing additional options for the production of dredge ball joint as they can be provided with welded pipe and flange execution, with gland liner, ball liner, extra or special lifting lugs or only with different type of locking.

Assembly or dis-assembly

This wide range of dredge ball joints bring a lot of benefits such as easy assembly or dis-assembly, low required maintenance, quick fix and release of locking. The replaceable liners are made from wear resistant materials and there is a very low friction between ball and gland due to grease grooves and polished ball and gland face. All dredge ball joints are designed, produced, assembled, tested, painted, greased, packed and transported under close super vision of Dredge Yard team of engineers and quality control.

Dredge Yard emphasizes on after sales and ensures total customer satisfaction delivering dredge related products with a high ratio of reliability and value for money.
