Dredger Technologies

Customised Solutions For Dredger Applications

Dredging vessels are designed for excavation activities usually carried out at least partly underwater, in shallow water or fresh water areas with the purpose of gathering up bottom sediments and disposing of them at a different location, mostly to keep waterways navigable. To perform these tasks dredgers are equipped with different specific dredging devices.

Maximum efficiency and minimum labor expenses are essential for the successful dredging operation. Designed to meet this requirement our products for dredging applications are based on industrial state-of-the-art hardware components.

Wärtsilä SAM dredger control technology permits control of the entire dredging process from one central station (one man operation). All relevant data for production and cost optimized control of the dredging operations are displayed to the dredge master. SAM dredger control and monitoring is designed in partnership with Vosta LMG.

Wärtsilä SAM Electronics offers the engineering, manufacturing, supply and installation of equipment for all types of dredger vessels.
