Dredge Spec Sheet

Nu Enterprise Cutter Suction Dredge

The Nu Enterprise 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 constantly improve our equipment. This culture of innovation gives us the leading edge as dredging contractor of choice.

The Nu Enterprise 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 in mining and resource dredging. 

The dredge is demountable and can be cost effectively transported to remote sites around Australia and overseas. 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 Enterprise Cutter Suction Dredge has been successfully used for the removal of sand, muds, silts, and slimes and mine tailings.

In harbour and river works, where a variety of natural and dumped materials might be encountered, Neumann dredges have proven their versatility.

Neumann’s extensive dredging experience also makes our dredges highly suited for a variety of material types often encountered in flood prevention and environmental rehabilitation works.
