On 20 June 2022 the dredger named Estoril was handed over to its owner in a special ceremony. Fitted out with a renowned Damen submersible DOP dredge pump, the modular dredger will be located at the Port of Beira, where it will be performing maintenance dredging duties to ensure accessibility for larger vessels. Damen designed and built the dredger to EMODRAGA’s specifications. At 15 meters long and 7 meters wide, the DOP Dredger can be dismounted and easily transported by trucks, even to remote locations. Additionally, reassembly can be done swiftly due to its plug ‘n play design and the limited unit weight.Equipped with a jet water-assisted suction head, the submersible dredge pump will be able to reach high mixture concentrations during its maintenance dredging activities, pumping some 800 cubic meters per hour. The dredger also has a very limited draught to guarantee access to the entire port.Once tested in the Netherlands, the modular dredger was disassembled and transported to the Port of Beira, where it was reassembled in only six days. Then Damen’s expert field service engineers trained the crew on the spot.
