The DOP dredge pump concept is not new. It has been designed in the early 1990s by Damen Dredging Equipment together with dredging contractor Ballast Nedam. The combination of the Damen dredge pumps together with the day to day experience in the dredging field of Ballast Nedam has resulted in a compact dredging tool that fits in every corner.

The DOP design has evolved the past decades in a heavy duty, fit for purpose dredging tool. Recently the latest generation of DOP pumps was launched, integrating new practical features. More types were added to the range for more versatility.
