|20120272552||CUTTER HEAD FOR DREDGING GROUND, CUTTER SUCTION DREDGER PROVIDED WITH SUCH A CUTTER HEAD AND USE OF THE CUTTER HEAD FOR DREDGING GROUND - A cutter head according to the invention is particularly suitable for breaking relatively hard ground, is self-sharpening and has an extended service life.||11-01-2012|
|20110271561||Cutter Head for Dredging Ground and Method for Dredging Using this Cutter Head - A cutter head for dredging ground under water is disclosed. The cutter head is suitable for attachment to the ladder of a cutter suction dredger and for being moved through the ground therewith in a lateral sweeping movement. The cutter head includes a rotation-symmetrical revolving body which is rotatable around its rotation axis by means of drive means and which is provided along its peripheral surface with a number of cutting tools for penetrating into the ground, wherein the rotation axis of the cutter head runs substantially perpendicularly of the longitudinal direction of the ladder and substantially tangentially to the direction of the sweeping movement. Likewise, a method for breaking ground underwater, making use of the cutter head is shown.||11-10-2011|
|20110239493||DRAG HEAD FOR A TRAILING SUCTION HOPPER DREDGER AND METHOD FOR DREDGING USING THIS DRAG HEAD - The invention relates to a drag head of a trailing suction hopper dredger. The drag head comprises a visor which is dragged over the bottom and herein loosens soil, and a suction pipe which is connected to the visor and which discharges the loosened soil. The visor comprises at least two individually movable pressure elements transversely of the dragging direction which comprise a number of substantially disc-shaped penetrating bodies. The penetrating bodies transmit forces to the bottom via their peripheral edge under the influence of the weight of the pressure element in which they are received, whereby the bottom is broken. The drag head has an improved efficiency.||10-06-2011|
|20100299971||METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR OPTIMIZING DREDGING - The present invention relates to a method for optimizing the dredging of an area by a dredge equipped with a cutter suction head (||12-02-2010|
|20100299970||A SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR OPTIMIZING DREDGING - The present invention relates to a system for optimizing the dredging of an area by a vessel (||12-02-2010|
|20090126237||Apparatus With Flexibly Mounted Spud Carriage - In one embodiment of the present invention, an apparatus is disclosed for accommodating a substantially vertical spud of a dredging vessel with a longitudinal direction, including a spud carriage which is mounted for limited rotation around a horizontal transverse axis, wherein at least a first and a second spring device is arranged under bias between vessel and spud in the longitudinal direction for the purpose of absorbing a moment on the spud carriage, which first and second spring devices compensate each other in the non-loaded situation of the spud; and at least one spring device is provided with a spring force limiting device for limiting the tension in the spring element from a determined maximum moment on the spud carriage.||05-21-2009|
|20090113769||Device and Method for Changing a Suction Mouth - A device is disclosed for changing a suction mouth of a cutter suction dredge of a vessel with cutter ladder. In at least one embodiment, the device includes, comprising a work platform which, as seen in the transverse direction of the vessel, is provided substantially in the middle with an opening, wherein—a support structure is provided which can be fixedly connected to the work platform in a position substantially under the opening, which support structure is adapted to support a suction mouth; —and the work platform with support structure is tiltable around a first, substantially horizontal transverse axis between a substantially horizontal operating position and a high position in which the cutter ladder can be moved upward, which positions are such that the work platform with support structure is movable from its high position to its operating position when the cutter ladder is situated in a high raised position.||05-07-2009|
