Two New Dredgers by Dragflow Delivered in Estonia and Italy

Dragflow, a worldwide player in solid pumping solutions, announces the installation of two new dredgers, one in northern Europe (Estonia) and the second in southern Europe (Italy).

These two projects show Dragflow’s ability to adapt easily to the different contexts and applications in which the company operates.

The dredging machine DRH400E23 has been completely designed, manufactured and tested by Dragflow’s technicians and engineers, using their consolidated knowhow and expertise gained in 25 years of dredge equipment manufacturing, in order to assure the reliability and functionality of the product.

The dredge will operate near Tallin, the capital city of Estonia, to extract sand and gravel. It can reach a discharge distance of 1,5 kilometers with a working depth up to 35m and a production of 400t-500t of solid material per hour.

The Caterpiller C18 diesel motor guarantees high performance, and the technical solutions adopted for the DRH400E23 model make operator activities more comfortable with a control cab that is completely sound-proof and equipped with air conditioned system.

The second machine, working in Reggio Calabria, is a DRH085JDB that will be used to reopen the Saline Joniche’s harbour, a very important port for the economy of the whole region. This is an operation that’s been expected for a long time and that will be coordinated by the Capitaneria di Porto di Reggio Calabria.

Dragflow’s dredger, equipped with IVECO diesel motor, will extract sand and gravel from the seabed to recover harbour original depth. It’s important to highlight the technical features of the machine; the dredge DRH085JDB model can reach a working depth of 15m, with a discharge distance of 500m, and guarantees a production of 400m³ per hour. The delivery time has been less than two months.
