IADC Fleet List 2019

As a service to the dredging community, IADC releases an updated version of the IADC Fleet List each year. Data regarding the plants of IADC members is gathered annually by the Registered Plant Committee and then formulated into a list.

Are the days of the double-walled pump housing numbered?
Are the days of the double-walled pump housing numbered?

For several decades, the preferred solution for isolating dredging pumps within a vessel has been double-walled pump housing. To bypass this housing type’s intrinsic problems, Damen formulated an alternative.

Safety Award 2018 Winner: Van Oord Debris Removal Platform

To promote innovations within the realm of safety within the dredging industry, the International Association of Dredging Companies gives a Safety Award to an exemplary programme, procedure or project each year. Announced at the IADC’s Annual General Meeting, the winner of the Safety Award 2018 is Van Oord’s Debris Removal Platform. Van Oord changed the existing technique of manually removing debris to an automated system, reducing the risk of personal injury.

Trailing suction hopper dredgers
Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers: How does it work?

Trailing suction hopper dredgers can fill their own holds (hoppers) by sucking material from the seabed using a trailing suction head fitted to pipes that trail over the bed as the ship sails.
