Dredge Spec Sheet

Nu Kathleen Cutter Suction/Suction Dredge

The Nu Kathleen Cutter Suction/Suction Dredge is a small, lightweight 150mm dredge built by Neumann Equipment in the early 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 dredge can be used as a suction dredge or as a cutter suction dredge.

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 Kathleen Cutter Suction Dredge has been successfully used to remove sand, muds, silts, slimes, and mine tailings.

In harbour and river works, where the cutter 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.
