Trailing Suction Hopper Dredge

Hopper dredgers excavate materials from the seabed, primarily by forward movements and suction power, through an extendable suction pipe and a draghead. The on board hydraulic installations of hopper dredgers are usually very exhaustive. A lot of specific movements (each with their own requirements) have to be carried out. To tackle these movements, Rexroth has developed various product-packages.
