The Damen Shipyards Group has sold a cutter suction dredger (CSD) 500 to the Argentinian dredging contractor Servimagnus.
The CSD will work on the ambitious waterways programme in the province of Buenos Aires. “Currently, there is an important dredging project taking place in Argentina,” explains Ezequiel Najmias, Damen Shipyards Group sales manager Americas. “One of the major rivers in the outstretched plains in the Argentinian Province of Buenos Aires, the Salado River, is undergoing major maintenance dredging.”
The modular dredger is currently under construction at the Damen Dredging yard in Nijkerk, The Netherlands, and will be shipped to South America this autumn.
