Multicat Dredging Support & Buoy Handling Vessel
UKD Seahorse is a 25 metre Multicat designed specifically by Damen Shipyards for UK Dredging. She is specified to provide a multi purpose dredging support vessel with bed-levelling, buoy handling and survey capability.
Driven by 2 x 477 KW Cummins engines she is also configured to run a submersible dredging pump and auger that will be suspended from a specially adapted marine crane.
Her principle duties are those of a bed leveller and her 10 metre plough is capable of working at a depth of 30 metres.
The Multicat form provides the stability to assist in dredging support, to handle floating pipelines and to act as a marine working platform.
Fully equipped with DGPS and digital mapping her survey equipment is fully compatible with all of UK Dredging's fleet and able to act on a stand-alone basis. A Winch encoder accurately determines plough depth so that the combined package offers a complete survey and bed levelling service.
Winch arrangements permit 3 point anchoring allowing accurate positioning for submersible pump dredging and for holding the vessel on station in difficult tidal or harbour conditions.
