Following various dredgers recently delivered in Bangladesh, and the successfully organised Damen Dredging Seminar last month in Dhaka where Her Excellency Mrs. Leoni Cuelenaere, the Dutch Ambassador to Bangladesh was the honorable chief guest, Damen has again delivered multiple dredgers from available stock.

Regional Sales Director Rabien Bahadoer said: “Damen has again confirmed its long-term commitment to Bangladesh by delivering quality dredgers with a proven design from ready stock. This will swiftly help our customers to start their dredging job in supporting the riverine country.” Mr Bahadoer added that “Our dedicated Service Team has overseen a very fast handover. This August delivery comes very soon after our well received Dredging Seminar in July. The dredgers include various optional items, such as production meters, spud carriage systems and spare parts. A unique achievement, and we expect that there is more to come.”
