WDH is pleased to announce that the digging system of the world’s largest backhoe dredger, a Boskalis-owned excavator unitknown as ‘The Magnor’, is equipped with 12 WDH cylinders.
In consultation with the client’s technical specialists, WDH came up with a customer-specific design. The double-acting hydraulic cylinders, with strokes ranging from 2 to 5 meters, are suitable for use in the most extreme conditions.
It is a high-quality design with forged and casted parts instead of welded joints, because of better fatigue behavior. In addition, an extra bearing is placed in order to maintain stability.
WDH also designed build the rotary joint, the interface between the vessel and digger.
In 2010, WDH was previously given the honour of supplying hydraulic cylinders for the Magnor’s predecessor unit, the Baldur.
