A Damen Cutter Suction Dredger, type CSD500, has been built under license by Canal Naval Construction for the Egyptian General Authority for Fish Resource Development. The customer, a long term Damen customer, requested local construction which was supervised by Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC). Damen delivered a complete dredging package so that the customer could start the dredging job without delay.
The CSD500, named ”25 January” after the day of the beginning of the Egyptian revolution, has been built by Canal Naval Constructions Co (CNC) of Port Fouad, Egypt. Damen Dredging Equipment sent over all vital components such as the dredge pump, the control cabin etc in containers. Together with all required drawings and the DTC assistance, CNC built a perfect CSD500. The CSD500 is fitted out with a large number of optionals, as well as the auxiliary equipment required for the jobsite
