Tramarsa has taken delivery of a Damen Cutter Suction Dredger (CSD) 450. 

Tramarsa will be providing the tools to its subsidiary company Salaverry Terminal Internacional (STI), which will be using the new vessel for maintenance dredging tasks in the Port of Salaverry, Peru.

The purchase of the new Damen CSD450 relates to the 30-year contract that STI was awarded for delivering port services at the Port of Salaverry. 

This contract includes maintenance dredging to keep the harbor at a suitable depth; operations that are necessary on a regular basis due to the currents along this part of the Peruvian coast that bring a lot of sand into the harbor area.

STI’s work will also consist of modifying the port infrastructure to increase quay length for bulk cargo vessels for the mineral and agricultural sectors.
