ABC to deliver dual fuel engines for DEME’s dredgers
Anglo Belgian Corporation informed it has received an order for two dual fuel engines that will power DEME’s dredgers currently under construction at the Dutch shipyard Royal IHC.
Both 16VDZD dual fuel engines run on diesel and liquefied natural gas, Anglo Belgian Corporation said in a statement on Tuesday.
The commissioning of the two trailing suction hopper dredgers, the Minerva and Scheldt River is scheduled for late 2016.
DEME said earlier that the first vessel will be a “new generation” trailing suction hopper dredger in the ‘Antigoon class’ with a hopper volume of approx. 8,000 m³ and a total length of 104 meters, while the second vessel will be a trailing suction hopper dredger to replace the ‘Orwell class’, with a hopper volume of 3,000 (3,500) cubic meters.
