Engineering and production of bow discharge coupling

Straatman is currently working on a bow discharge coupling, which will be installed on an oil recovery and dredging vessel. When not tending to emergencies it will work as a hopper dredger.

We execute both engineering and production of this bow discharge coupling in our factory in Zwijndrecht. The unit, with an inside diameter of 900 mm, will consist of a fixed female part and a separate male coupling part with integrated floating body. A cool item of this system, which is often underexposed, is the rainbow nozzle which is provided next to the gantry construction. Although on a dredger the rainbow unit might look like a tiny little thing, this component still weighs 4700 kg !
