The cutter dredger is a powerful and essential tool in many dredging and marine operations. Cutter suction dredgers are specifically designed to dredge compact and hard soils under the waterline.
Neptune has developed its own line of cutter suction dredgers. We offer both seagoing and stationary cutter suction dredgers. These state of the art quality cutter dredgers ensure safe and efficient performance during the entire dredging operations.
The working of cutter dredgers
Cutter dredgers are used to dredge materials from a seabed or lakebed by cutting hard soils into small fragments with a rotating cutter head. Through powerful dredge pumps, the mixture of materials and water is sucked up, transported to and discharges at the indicated (onshore) deposit area via a floating pipeline. Alternatively, the material can also be pumped onto barges for further transport to an (offshore) deposit area.
