Vosta Gets Order for Cutter Suction Dredge

Tuesday, February 26, 2008
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 major Dredging International (member of the DEME group) and the Indian construction giant Larsen & Toubro. The dredge will be used for dredging projects throughout India due to the growing demand from the Indian market for dredging operations.

The mono hull cutter suction dredge design and characteristics has been defined in close co-operation with the client and can be operated 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 cutter head and a Vosta LMG wire system spud carrier. Unique for the Indian cutter suction fleet is that the main power is generated by SKL diesel engines, which can run on HFO for a better economic efficiency. The CSD will be equipped with the latest Vosta LMG cutting and pumping technology. The cutter ladder will be fitted with the Vosta LMG patented T2 designed teeth which are based on the already existing Vosta LMG T4 and T6 designs, but recently specifically developed for smaller cutter dredgers. The dredge is being built and tested in Malaysia, by Vosta LMG and its partner Vantage co.
