Making of the world’s most powerful CSD SPARTACUS (VIDEO)
Royal IHC has released a timelapse video about the construction of the world’s most powerful cutter suction dredger ‘SPARTACUS’.
The CSD SPARTACUS sets a new benchmark in the global dredging market.
Its ground breaking, eco-friendly design and countless innovations on board make it the only one of its kind.
The SPARTACUS is the world’s largest self-propelled cutter suction dredger and the first to be powered by liquefied natural gas (LNG).
The four main engines can run on LNG, MDO and HFO, and the two auxiliary engines have dual-fuel technology.
With 44,180 kilowatts, the SPARTACUS is the most powerful CSD in the DEME fleet, and the strongest cutter suction dredger in the world, capable of handling even the most challenging rocky bottom formations.
