Sietas shipyard hands over second suction dredger christened 'Eke Möbius' to Josef Möbius Bau-GmbH in Hamburg.

The Eke Möbius is 118.47 metres long with a displacement of 6.8 metres and has four diesel engines that together develop 6,760 kW. It can dredge at a depth of up to 35 metres.

This dredger has cargo capacity of 7,350 cubic metres and has a transit speed of 13 knots. While suction dredging it has a top speed of two knots.

An innovative type of power management for the generators and electric engines, as well as for travelling drive and dredging pump operation, ensures minimal diesel consumption, wear and emissions. There is space for a crew of 16 including captain, officers, engineers, dredging master, electricians and deck hands in 24-hour operation.

President of the Federal Maritime and Hydrographic Agency (BSH) christened the “Eke Möbius” in the presence of 250 invited guests from the worlds of business and politics.

Part of the STRABAG Group of Austria and based in Hamburg, Josef Möbius Bau-GmbH is one of Germany’s leading hydraulic engineering companies.

“Today’s handover is a fantastic success for the Sietas shipyard, meeting all quality, delivery and budget stipulations,” said Dr. Tobias Brinkmann at the ceremony, who managed this project as part of the insolvency administration process. “It is the third ship to be completed and delivered during the Sietas shipyard’s insolvency proceedings and sees the shipyard make another important contribution to maritime expertise in Hamburg. The shipyard is continuing to work flat-out on the first wind-power installation vessel for delivery next year. Negotiations have already begun for the second such vessel.”
