We’re delighted to hear that the dredger ‘CEMEX Go Innovation’ has now launched!
The new multi-million pound dredger is built by The Damen Group and includes two built-up SlurryPro 6x4 centrifugal pumps on-board.
An agreement for the pumps to be included on the dredger was struck thanks to a pre-existing partnership between the Dutch company Bakker and Co. and Atlantic Pumps who manufacturer SlurryPro.
The vessel is the first in the next generation of environmentally designed dredgers and is designed to extract sand and gravel from the seabed up to depths of 55 metres, including in the challenging conditions experienced in the North Sea.
"As CEMEX’s key pump partner in the UK it is fantastic to have been able to be part of one their largest investments of recent years" said Atlantic Pumps Managing Director, Andy Smith. "It is a demonstration of the benefits of our global reach and being able to support their ongoing needs – ensuring minimal downtime with our rapid spares backup".
