Three UP 3000’s in Romana port in the Dominican Republic

19 September 2014

They recently purchased three UP 3000‘s, and are about to buy another three, for a project to enlarge the port of Romana, an important tourist resort in the Dominican Republic.

The underwater excavations will be required to enlarge the port and to build new quays that will be able to provide a berth for large passenger liners. The three UP 3000 breakers were chosen for this job not only because of their reliability in such tough jobs, but also because they have a special compressed-air kit which enables the breakers to work underwater without any problems, by preventing the piston from coming into contact with the water.
