Project description

Through the distributor Ace Centro Enterprises (ACE), Dragflow supplied two Dragflow dredging pumps to an international dredging contractor for coastal protection works in Fujairah – U.A.E.

The problem

The customer was looking for the best solution for the long-distance pumping of dredged sand into geo-pipes, within a complex coastal protection project.

The contractor was to install three layers of geotextile membrane pipes and fill them with sand along the coast for a stretch of 300 meters. The project required the use of heavy-duty submersible dredging pumps capable of producing a high content of sand to be pumped over the entire distance in the geotubes.

The solution

Based on the details of the project, ACE supplied two DRAGFLOW pumps to the construction site:

EL60B – 8 “electric dredging pump with a capacity of 350 m³ / hour.
HY85 / 160B – 10 “hydraulic dredging pump with a capacity of 460 m³ / hour.

ACE engineers and technicians managed the commissioning on site professionally and helped the customer connect the HY85 / 160B to the Komatsu PC 400LC long arm excavator.

The coastal protection project started and took place quickly thanks to the correct choice of equipment.
