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.
