    Hopper dredgers

    Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers (TSHD) excavate materials from the seabed, primarily by its forward movement and suction power, through an extendable suction-pipe and a draghead.

    Cutter dredgers

    Cutter suction dredgers (CSD) are equipped with a hydraulic cutter head to increase the dislodging force. These cutter dredgers are suitable for use in high strength materials such as clays, packed or compact sands and rocks.
