Dredge Yard has designed, cast, and fabricated two sets of dredge pumps for a hopper dredger located in the Arabian Gulf region. The existing dredge pump has a single curved vane on its impeller, resulting in low performance and higher wear. Dredge Yard increased the efficiency by using a double-curved three vanes impeller.
To improve the efficiency and wear, Dredge Yard used its own high-efficiency double curve impeller, optimized and simulated in CFD software.
Currently, the two sets of pumps are under fabrication at the Dredge Yard facility in cooperation with partners in Turkey.
