Dredging joints and equipment

In 1965 we entered the dredging market by developing a steel plate ball joint for floating pipe lines in cooperation with dredging company Bos & Kalis. This company also ordered the first drag heads.
Through the years we developed our dredging components program and we now supply products all over the world. With an experience of more than 45 years of continuous product improvement we meet the requirements of our customers worldwide and have gained a reputation of capability and reliability.

One of our best known products is the bow discharge installation. It is a bow coupling installation designed for hopper dredgers.

With this installation a quick connection can be made between the ship and the floating pipeline. With this solution we created a complete new and very effective way of land reclamation in the dredging industry.

Since 1984 we have delivered hundreds of bow coupling installations all over the world.

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.
