Explaining about the product and its application areas she said: "Dredgers are widely used across a broad range of sectors ranging from port infrastructure creation, aggregate, ore and precious metal mining, dam desiltation and land reclamation. The modular design of ITALDRAGHE dredgers means that they can be easily dismounted and transported to even the most remote inland locations. In today’s world prompt high quality after sales service is a must. Our specialized local team in India (trained in Italy) is well qualified to provide such service in direct collaboration with ITALDRAGHE."
Mr. Pradip A. Sawant, who is representing ITALDRAGHE in India, said: "Given its specialist sector expertise, ITALDRAGHE has been already called upon to participate in several major government infrastructure projects in south of the country. The full range of ITALDRAGHE products is finding openings in the Indian market too. There is, for example, a huge demand for cutter suction dredgers for coastal and inland waterway projects; key dredger components are increasingly being requested by local dredger builders looking to incorporate European technology into their vessels; plus numerous local shipyards are seeking reliable suppliers of propulsion units, such as rudder propellers and bow thrusters," he added.
ITALDRAGHE dredging equipment, and its dredging pumps in particular, are used for a wide range of applications in the construction industry. A large number of aggregate mines use its pumps for excavating building aggregates (sand, gravel, etc) from open in-water quarries as well as from the sea. Its dredging equipment also play a fundamental role in land creation and back fill/new land reclamation projects.
As ITALDRAGHE produces all of its products in-house, maintaining full control over the entire manufacturing process, it is able to guarantee spare part availability at all times.
Talking on the specialization of the company Dr. Sarah said: "ITALDRAGHE SpA first started producing cutter suction dredgers back in the 1950s. Over the last half a century, due to the technological advances and its extensive worldwide dredging experience (in Europe, South and Central America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East) the company has grown and developed considerably. Its ever-expanding product range includes cutter suction dredgers, booster stations, pontoons, dredging pumps, backflow pipelines and riddling plants. In addition to its latest MASTER DREDGER range, ITALDRAGHE also manufactures custom-made dredgers designed on the basis of precise client requirements. Furthermore, it specializes in providing complete solution packages for specific dredging projects as well as supplying bow thrusters, dredger cutters, pumps and rudder propellers."
