Cutter Suction Dredge

Cutter suction dredgers are equipped with a cutting device that increases the dislodging force. This makes cutter dredgers suitable for use in high strength materials such as clay, packed or compact sand and rock. A stationary dredger is moored by means of anchors and/or spuds and is swung around the spudpole, which is powered by winches. The main advantages of this type of vessel is its ability to operate in shallow water and to dredge a wide range of materials.
