Main features

One container transportable

Plain suction ECO 150 convertible design

This compact budget dredger can be transported in one standard, high cube (40 feet) container in an assembled state. The compact design makes it easy to transport, launch, operate & store for later use.

Convertible design

Side pontoons of ECO 150 can fold upwards. Thus, it is easy to mobilize, launch on project site & store for later use. It is extremely practical for reoccurring maintenance projects.


Dredger ECO 150 design

Plain suction ECO 150 is a budget dredger due to its low purchase price. Additionally, it has low fuel consumption, which results in small operational costs as well as decreased CO2 emissions.

Submersible dredge pump

Cutter Suction Dredger 300 submersible pump

Plain suction ECO 150 is equipped with a submersible dredge pump, which achieves high pumping flow of high density mixture. Therefore, it has higher production rates than a regular pump.

Extendable depth

Standard dredging depth of 8m can be extended to 20m through an additional adapter placed in between the dredge pump and the plain suction head system.

Optional: propulsion

ECO 150 series propeller

The dredger can be supplied with a hydraulic thruster in the back of the dredger. This makes the dredger self-propelled, resulting in easier maneuverability around the dredging area.

Plain suction ECO 150 Applications

Reservoir, lake & dam dredging

Reservoir, lake & dam dredging landscape

Plain suction ECO 150 is compact, easy to operate & launch on site, even in the most remote or small areas. It can efficiently remove newly accumulated silt in lakes, dams or reservoirs to maintain their full capacity. Its max. depth of 8m can be extended to 20m – ideal for dam & reservoir reclamation.

Water intake cleaning & dredging
