As the name suggests, a split hopper literally splits in half over the entire length of the vessel to dump its contents. As a result, the discharge of soil in this type of hopper happens very rapidly. Our split hoppers are designed for seagoing and inland use. The ease and speed of disposal makes them highly attractive for use in combination with backhoe dredgers, cutter suction dredgers and grab hopper dredgers. We can also convert this vessel to a trailing suction hopper dredger with a trailing suction pipe system, or to a grab hopper dredger by installing a crane.
Why choose our split hopper?
- cost-effective option for executing various dredging projects
- competitive pricing
- rapid discharge of dredged soil
- sophisticated ship design
- adaptable through various modular add-ons.
