Cutter suction dredger

Van Oord operates self-propelled, seagoing cutter suction dredgers and stationary cutter suction dredgers. The versatility and availability of an all-round fleet of 18 cutter suction dredgers enable us to execute a broad range of projects. 

 

Van Oord has 15 cutter suction dredgers in its fleet:

  • Aegir
  • Ajax
  • Artemis
  • Athena
  • Biesbosch
  • Calabar River
  • Castor
  • HAM 218
  • HAM 219
  • HAM 250
  • Hector
  • Mangystau
  • Noordzee
  • Ural River
  • Zeeland II

How does it work?

A cutter suction dredger is a self-propelled or stationary vessel that uses a rotating cutter head to loosen the material in the hard ground (so-called cutting).

Practice makes more perfect

To remain the best in business, crew members train on regular basis in our in-house simulator training centre. The real-time external view of the operations and the variety of different vessels make the training realistic. In the past year, all of our cutter suction dredger crews were trained to keep their experience current.
