Gulf Cobla operates four Cutter Suction Dredger units; CSD Khaleej Bay, CSD Garhoud Bay, CSD Deira Bay & CSD Baniyas Bay. The first three of these dredged have been specifically designed based on the local, Middle East conditions (both climatologically and geo-technical). The electrical cutter drive and the sturdy design of the cutter-ladder, spud carrier and pontoon allows these dredgers to be utilized not only in soft and medium sand, but also in weak to moderately weak rock. In 2012, Gulf Cobla added the fourth dredger, the Baniyas Bay, to their fleet. This hydraulically driven Beaver 3,800 type dredger excels in sandy type materials and adds to the flexibility and availability of Gulf Cobla’s dredging fleet.

The oldest dredgers, the Garhoud and Deira Bay have been rebuild, both the mechanical and electrical elements, and are in a very good state of maintenance. The Khaleej Bay has been added to the fleet in 2004. This CSD is the first heavy-duty dredger constructed in the Middle East.

To support the dredging process, Gulf Cobla operates a fleet of auxiliary plant and equipment. To ensure a smooth operation this up-to-date fleet of land based and marine equipment includes: bulldozers (LGP), excavators (LGP), wheel loaders, trucks and trailers, mobile workshops, mobile accommodation units, site offices, general cargo barges, work & tugboats, etc.
