Equipment for Suction Hopper Dredger Vessels

Power Generation, Distribution and Electric Drives

On modern suction hopper dredger vessels the specific dredging devices are designed with electric drives as all-electric ship, such as:

  • Submersible and inboard dredge pumps
  • Jet pump for jet water to drag head
  • Main and thruster propulsion to drive and manoeuvre the dredging vessel

Dredge Control and Monitoring System (DCMS)

Dredge Control Technology for the entire Dredging Process includes:

  • Control and monitoring of the dredging process
  • Automatic functions and procedures
  • Production monitoring
  • Reporting, logging and trending
  • Dredge chart operations (survey system)
  • Diagnosis for ship’s machinery system
  • Suction pipe position monitoring
  • Draught and loading monitoring
