Dredger

The global urbanisation boom is devouring colossal amounts of sand – the key ingredient of concrete and asphalt. At the same time, harbours and waterways have to be made wider and deeper to be able to house vessels that are getting larger to support greater economies of scale in a competitive global transport market.

This change in competitive conditions put the dredging companies on the spot to modernize their machines and their techniques. Dredging machines have to run constantly in order to be cost-effective. Replacing worn or damaged seals is very time-consuming and correspondingly expensive. So uptime is essential for dredging companies. That’s why dredging components require the highest standard in reliability, efficiency and operational and environmental safety – for new built and the running fleet.
