The used 16” Bagema dredger, which is manufactured in 2002, is equipped with an IDP400 underwater pump on the ladder. The dredge pump is frequency driven by an electric motor with a power of 500 kW. The jet water pump with a capacity of 600 m3/h is placed inside the star board pontoon. The maximum suction depth of the dredger is 55 meter below water level.
The dredger is operated by the IDRECO Dredger Control System, which guarantees maximum efficiency in dredging and maximum production with the least energy requirements. The system controls the pump and suction tube fully automatic based on mixture velocity, vacuum in the suction pipe, discharge pressure and mixture concentration measurement.
