Our company currently owns one large hopper dredging vessels complete with a clamshell grab crane. And in addition to the grab hopper dredger we also own a water injection dredger.
•Admiral Day (Hopper Dredger)
•Doonhamer (Water Injection Dredger)
The Hopper (a hopper is a hold that allow dredge material to be stored on board the vessel) allows our company to transport the dredge material out to sea without the assistance of barges or conveyer belts.
The grab dredger is the most commonly used dredger in the world, especially in North America and the Far East. It is a rather simple and easy to understand stationary dredger with and without propulsion.
For clamshell dredgers the method of anchoring and the positioning system plays an important role for the effectiveness of the dredger. Our employees at Wyre Marine Services LTD are highly trained and experienced in the maneuvering our vessels and do so with ease.
