CSD Mooring Systems

On this website an overview of the mooring system and methodology of a Cutter Suction Dredge (CSD) is given. During operation the dredger moves around a spud pole by puling and slacking on the two fore sideline wires. This type of dredger is capable to dredge all kind of material and is accurate due to their movement around the spud pole.
