As a result of massive dredging projects, the ports of the Caspian Sea are now set to be more navigable.
This strategically important waterway has a length of about 1,200 kilometers from north to south, an average width of 320 kilometers from east to west.
Also, more than 130 rivers flow into the Caspian Sea, including the Volga, Ural and Terek Rivers – these three account for 88% of the total water flow. This region is likely to become one of the world’s major energy suppliers in the 21st century, after the Gulf region.
“Due to the sustainable economic development plans and a need to ensure the smooth navigation of these waterways, the demand for more dredging vessels in the Caspian Sea area will increase, and we are ready,” said Relong, one of the oldest and most esteemed shipyards specializing in dredgers in China.
Relong 650 Model CSD dredger has 5000 m3/hr dredging capacity and can achieve up to 20m dredging depth.
