Dredging Plough - 20 tons of steel
Since decades, we are well known for high-quality dredging equipment. Especially for products such as bow couplings, ball joints and turning glands. With our experience, craftsmanship and dedication to dredging, we have the pleasure to produce custom-made dredging equipment as well. At the moment we are producing a dredging plough with a total length of 14 meters and a weight of 20 tons!
Detail engineering of dredging plough
We received the order to produce this big plough from a local tug & workboat company specialized in dredge support. Based on a typical design our dredging engineer executed the detail engineering of this custom-made plough. This approved design suits the specific requirements and wishes of our client. Besides the plough, we also designed the hoisting beam. It will be produced by Straatman too and will be supplied with test certificate.
An impressively large plough
Meanwhile, the production is in full motion, and we look forward to sharing the results of this heavyweight project. The main part has a length of 10 meters and can be extended to 14 meters by the use of 2 expansion pieces. These are produced by Straatman as well. This beautiful piece of work can justifiably be called big and impressive...
Typical parts of the plough
A typical part of a dredging plough are the so-called cutting teeth. These wear parts are replaceable and used to scrape the river or seabed. This specific plough we are building at the moment, contains 88 pieces of cutting teeth.
