Italdraghe: New Cutter Suction Dredger Shipped Out

Italdraghe has just shipped a new cutter suction dredger to the Ethiopian Ministry of Water and Energy.

The SGT 250 cutter suction dredger, designed and built in Italdraghe’s shipyard on the Adriatic coast, is 23.70 metres long and 4.40 wide and is able to dredge down to 7.5 metres.

It features a Draghe Lario dredging pump and IVECO C90 engine (280 kW at 2,000 rpm) as well as a 10 kVA generator. The dredger also boasts a spud carriage with a travel of 2000mm and a tilting spud system.

Its extremely comfortable fully-fitted out operator cabin offers all-round vision and an impressive range of instrumentation including production measuring equipment.

Having successfully passed its pre-shipment tests and inspections it is already on its way to Djibouti from where it will travel overland to Lake Tana in the Amhara region. Following on from dredger assembly and commissioning, Italdraghe technicians will run an onsite training course for the local dredger operators to familiarise them with the equipment.
