Solar for mega cutter suction dredger
For one of our dredging customers, we designed 2 remote controlled 250-tons quick release hooks equipped with a solar hydraulic powerpack. The usage of these systems is unique: When deploying their mega cutter suction dredgers, the customer uses our systems on their left and right anchor line pontoons for safe deployment and operation. The lines are used to move the ship in a left-to-right motion, sweeping their dredging work along the sea- or riverbed.
By using our Solar-Hydraulic powered remote control solution they can safely and remotely disconnect the anchor lines quickly in case of trouble, upcoming storm or when moving to another spot. By adding AIS, nautic light and working lights to the same system they get an all-in-one complete solution for safe deployment and operation of the pontoons during their 24/7 operational work.
