International Seaport Dredging Orders Cutter Dredge

VOSTA LMG has been awarded a contract for a cutter suction dredge CSD750 by International Seaport Dredging Ltd., a joint venture company of the Belgian Dredging International (member of the DEME group) and the Indian construction group Larsen & Toubro. The dredge will be used for projects throughout India.

The mono hull cutter suction dredge was designed in co-operation with the client for operation in shallow waters. It will be equipped with a Vosta LMG underwater dredge pump and inboard pump -- both type VL750 -- a hydraulically-driven Vosta T2 cutterhead with the company’s patented T2 tooth system for smaller dredges, and a Vosta LMG wire system spud carrier. Main power is generated by SKL diesel engines, which can run on HFO for a better economic efficiency.

The dredge is being built and tested in Malaysia, by Vosta LMG and its partner Vantage Co.
