Straatman is a global leader in advanced dredging equipment. We specialize in the design and manufacture of high quality Bow Discharge Installations, Turning Glands, and Ball Joints. We manage the entire production process, from engineering to construction, within our own facilities in Zwijndrecht, The Netherlands. This includes our own construction and coating facilities, ensuring the highest level of quality and protection for our products.

Dredging joints and equipment

Our journey in the dredging market began in 1965 when we developed a steel plate ball joint for floating pipelines in collaboration with Bos & Kalis. This marked our entry into the dredging industry, and we haven’t looked back since.

Nowadays, with over 55 years of experience and continuous product improvement, we are an established manufacturer and supplier and well known in the dredging industry for the quality and reliability of our products. Through the years we continued to develop our dredging equipment program, delivering our equipment all around the world. 

One of our most popular products is the bow discharge installation, designed specifically for hopper dredgers. This installation allows for a quick connection between the ship and the floating pipeline, introducing a new and highly effective method of land reclamation in the dredging industry.

Since 1984, we’ve delivered hundreds of these bow coupling installations all over the world. We’re proud to be a part of your dredging solutions and look forward to continuing to serve your needs.

Innovative solutions

Based on the principle design of the steel plate ball joints, we designed and developed sophisticated solutions for the dredging market. In the mean time our main delivery program for dredging components consists of the following products:

Besides these main products we have developed our own jet water monitors and are we able to offer cold pressed bends. As we have a wide range of machinery we can support our clients with custom made products and special designs related to dredging.
