The new 28-inch Suction Cutter Dredge, General Bradley, has just successfully completed its first job since it joined Callan Marine’s CSD fleet on the 17th Of May 2022.

The full dredge design & engineering work has been performed by MOTAS Dredging Solutions, a company based in the Netherlands, who also designed and delivered the main dredge components and systems, project management & commissioning.

Flexible spud carrier
A particular feature of the dredge is the MOTAS flexible spud carrier with hydraulic buffering including a spud pole tilting device, which makes it possible to work longer in certain sea conditions and increases mobilization flexibility.

We are very proud of being involved in this project and would like to thank the CALLAN MARINE Team and HALIMAR Shipyard for the good cooperation.
