VE 9

The hydraulic anchor pile pontoon VE 9 is suitable to be used in inland waterways and maritime waterways. On the pontoon, hydraulic dredgers up to 80 tons are installed with an underwater monitoring and a DGPS positioning system.

Due to the arrangement of the hydraulic anchor piles, the pontoon can work in a free slewing range of about 220┬░.

For transshipment  and other hydraulic engineering work the dredger can freely move on deck in the working range.

A hydraulic walking spud enables the pontoon to maneuver itself independently.
