A Damen CSD500 cutter suctionEgypt

Damen cutter suction dredger launched

A Damen CSD500 cutter suction dredger has been built under license by Canal Naval Construction for the Egyptian General Authority for Fish Resource Development.

The customer requested local construction which was supervised by Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC) who delivered a complete dredging package so that the customer could start the dredging job without delay.

The CSD500, named ”25 January” after the day of the beginning of the Egyptian revolution, has been built by Canal Naval Constructions Co (CNC) of Port Fouad, Egypt. Damen sent over all vital components such as the dredge pump, the control cabin etc in containers. Together with all required drawings and the DTC assistance, CNC built a perfect CSD500 fitted out with a large number of optional extras, as well as the auxiliary equipment required for the jobsite

Although designed for easy transportation, in this instance is was lifted into the sea by the Enkaz II crane barge. (photo above)

The dredger has a max dredging depth of 14 m, and a max installed power of 1.293 kW. The cutter power is 180 kW. It has a mixture capacity of some 4.000 m³/h. The standard dredger has been customized by adding a large number of options, such as a jib crane, navigation lights, a communication package, air conditioning, a bilge pump, heavier fenders, a fire fighting installation and a 500 litre fresh water tank with tap and sink. The dredger received Bureau Veritas class approval as it will be working near the Mediterranean coast.

Apart from the standard options, a complete dredging package was delivered to facilitate a quick start of the dredging job. The package includes 600 m floating pipe line, 600 m land based pipe line, a complete set of spare parts and crew training.

For the owner, General Authority for Fish Resources Development, the “25 January” is its second Damen dredger. Their first was the dredger “Bardawil Lagoon”, delivered in 1997. Both dredgers will operate in the Northern Egyptian lakes “Manzala”, Burullus” and “Bardawil” where they will assist in the development of the Egyptian aquaculture.
