Van Oord takes delivery of large dredging valves
The company responsible for several of Dubai’s biggest dredging projects has taken delivery of new big sized dredge valves.
Several numbers of big sized dredge valves have been successfully handed over to Van Oord, a leading contractor in dredging, marine engineering and offshore projects.
Van Oord has been working in Dubai for projects such as Palm Jumeirah, Palm Deira, The World, the development of Mina Zeyahi harbor and the ongoing island development off the coast of JBR.
The dredge valves have been produced in Dredge Yard’s facilities in Turkey by using latest production technologies and because of their large dimensions, special arrangements were made for being transported.
The dredge valves that have the inner diameter of 1100 and 1600 mm are going to control the flow of water and sand in the discharge pipes from the Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers that are operating at the moment for a new big dredging project.
To ensure high quality, all the dredge valves underwent through tests under 12 bars and were inspected by Van Oord’s representatives during and after production.
