Dredger’s Cutterheads Maintenance Works at Liepaja’s port (Latvia)

2022 February 8

Intense port dredging works! When inland Nord Steel workshop mobilizes offshore, it’s always all in. Four teams of welders and assemblers worked 24/7 for almost 4 months to secure Liepaja’s port deepening project in the Baltic Sea.

Nord Steel was responsible for performing maintenance works by replacing broken cutterhead parts. Logistic and procurement departments were involved as well, as our scope consisted of transportation services from port to workshop, including lifting services. Each cutterhead weighed approximately from 24 to 30 tons.

Believe it or not, we managed to repair 1-2 cutterheads daily!
