Dredging equipment can be delivered where needed

The transportation and relocation of dredging equipment around the world is a regular activity for Roll Group. We have undertaken a large number of projects providing both delivery of new dredgers to their purchasers, as well as mobilization and demobilization of existing equipment to various locations.
Roll Group offers an efficient door-to-door service. Due to our engineering adaptability, we can safely load and discharge at any location. Even at the

most impassable locations we create safe mooring conditions. The flexible approach of our Cargo Superintendents ensure that also unexpected equipment will be loaded, in case there is still space.
The submerging ability of our vessels coupled with the large dock hold and high sailing speed of our vessels ensure a safe and fast transit of dredging equipment.

Our solutions for the Dredging industry:

Quick reaction on changed requirements

Dredging Equipment

For the transportation of dredging equipment from A to B, the client was unable to confirm the loading sequence proposed by RollDock. Therefore, RollDock’s on-site team had to devise a loading scenario ad hoc. Starting with the floating in part of the cargo, followed by rest of the equipment which were lifted on board. By always having sufficient material for sea fastening on board of the vessels and flexible loading and discharging methods, Roll Group can quickly react to changed requirements for such transports.

No quay available? Let’s develop shore facilities

Cutter Dredger

At two points, the Float-In operation of a cutter dredger was a challenge. To allow discharge of the dredger by SPMTs, the RollDock vessel had to submerge extra deep to load the dredger on top of stools. At the destination there was no quay available, hence RollDock’s client developed jetty and shore facilities to cater for the characteristics of the RollDock vessel. As unloading was planned to take place on the Suriname river, the currents of the fast-flowing river had to be taken into account. Safe mooring was ensured by using additional mooring points and a reinforced quay wall on shore.
