Preparing CSD Willem van Rubroeck for its first job

The brand new dredger Willem van Rubroeck of Jan De Nul Group is being prepared for its first job.


Bakker Sliedrecht delivered and installed the electrical machinery package, including the propulsion drives and Alarm Monitoring System BIMAC.

Watch the project video they created together with Jan de Nul.

In the video, Boris Hoks of Bakker Sliedrecht and Ruben de Lille of Jan de Nul introduce more information about the project, the challenges and the co-operation.

This powerful cutter suction dredger, the largest in JDN fleet, has a total installed power of 40,975 kW, three dredging pumps of 8,500 kW each, a cutter capacity of 8,500 kW and an operational working depth up to 45 meters.

The Willem van Rubroeck is built to dredge in very hard rocky soil. And thanks to her size, this vessel can cope with more difficult conditions, such as higher waves and more challenging weather conditions.
