Monday, May 14, 2012

A state of the art, self-propelled cutter suction dredger, 'Ambiorix' named at the IHC Merwede shipyared in The Netherlands

The Ambiorix is one of the most powerful and advanced cutter suction dredgers in the world and was built for the DEME Group at the IHC Merwede shipyard in Hardinxveld-Giessendam, the Netherlands.

The new dredger is able to dredge to a water depth of 35 meters and can work heavy soil and hard rock. The Ambiorix is equipped with two inboard dredge pumps and one submerged dredge pump on the cutter ladder.

It also has a barge-loading system, which can load barges moored alongside the dredger. The flexible spud carrier includes a spud force limiting system which enables dredging during challenging weather conditions.

The dredging process is entirely touch screen operated, not only that, but the dredge, is equipped with a ‘remote-view’ online system, which provides a continuous  view of its dredging process at DEME’s head office in Zwijndrecht.
