Project Description

The problem

In a renowned coastal town in Southern Italy, the accumulation of sediments threatened the capacity of a small marina. Because of the progressive silting up, in fact, the number of boats that could be hosted was constantly decreasing. A serious problem mainly because the resort was experiencing an interesting phase of tourist development and more and more boats required access to the marina.

The solution

We have proposed a DRP18 remote control dredger: the smallest and therefore most manageable model in the range. The DRP18 is in fact able to operate even in very narrow spaces and is very effective where other larger pontoons would not be able to arrive.

The small dredger, equipped with a 12.5S electric pump, can be used at regular intervals to cope with the phenomenon of silting. In addition, it will be able to carry out restorative work on the neighboring beaches, for example purpose-built nurturing after extreme weather phenomena.
