HY85/160HC equipped with DTM85 cutterhead on the CAT345 boom.

Dragflow of Italy, delivered a hydraulic dredge pump with a frontal cutterhead to the Persian Gulf, where it will be used for dredge work to construct a fishery port near Jask, Iran.

The project had been relying on a long boom excavator on a barge, but that proved to be too slow for the work, so the contractor switched to Dragflow’s HY85/160HC hydraulic dredge with a DTM85 cutterhead on a CAT345 boom.

By switching to Dragflow equipment, daily production went up to about 280 cubic meters (366 cubic yards) of dry material (pumping 10 to 11 hours/day) discharged at 1 kilometer distance from the barge. In four months, 25,000 cubic meters (32,698 cubic yards) of dry sand was dredged and pumped.​​
