Nu Compact Cutter Suction Dredge
The Nu Compact Cutter Suction Dredge is a Neumann Series 250 Series 300mm dredge built by Neumann Equipment in the 1980s. Since then, it has undergone numerous refurbishments, upgrades and improvements. The operational expertise built on our contract dredging experience enables us to improve our equipment constantly. This culture of innovation gives us the leading edge as dredging contractors of choice.
The Nu Compact has evolved into a high technology cutting and recovery machine and has a well-earned reputation for performance and reliability in channel maintenance dredging, capital works marine dredging, and mining and resource dredging.
The dredge is demountable and can be cost-effectively transported to remote sites around Australia and overseas. In addition, the use of this dredge has proven to be a safe and cost-effective method on mine sites for the relocation or reprocessing of tailings.
The Nu Compact Cutter Suction Dredge has been successfully used to remove sand, gravels, clays, muds, silts, slimes, weathered rock, and mine tailings.
In harbour and river works, where the cuitter suction dredge might encounter a variety of natural and dumped materials, Neumann dredges have proven their versatility.
Neumann’s extensive dredging experience also makes our dredges highly suited for various material types often encountered in flood prevention and environmental rehabilitation works.
The Nu Compact has worked on the following Projects:
- Coomera River Dredging Channel Maintenance Dredging,
