VOSTA LMG has been awarded an order for efficient dredge ball joints from maritime services company Royal Boskalis Westminster.


The order consists of a series of high pressure Crossover ball joints suitable for dredge pipes with an internal diameter of 1000 mm. The Crossover ball joint is a new and patented design ball joint which utilizes two wear liners to provide optimal flow performance and maximum wear protection.

Nicole van Vliet, Fleet Manager at Boskalis, commented, “Boskalis has ordered a series of X15-1000, 32 bar Crossover ball joints from VOSTA LMG as these type of ball joints combine easier coupling with improved flow and wear resistance.”

“We are very happy to announce this prestigious order, following recent deliveries of Crossover ball joints in the Middle East,” said Marco Menheere, product manager at VOSTA LMG Components & Services. “This order is another confirmation that we are on the right track with the development of more efficient dredge ball joints and dredging technology in general.”
