In cooperation with our local representative, Straatman accepted a fantastic order for LNG terminal Paldiski in Lahepere Bay in Estonia.

These are used by a mega cutter suction dredger on their left and right anchor line pontoons, for safe deployment and operation.

These are busy days for dredging companies! At the moment there are many projects and dredgers deployed around the world, and when the dredgers are doing their hard work at sea they require a lot of new equipment, as can be seen in our factory at the moment.Read more
