Anglo Belgian Corporation, a manufacturer of medium speed diesel engines, announced the sale of two 16VDZD dual fuel engines that will power a new build vessel for the Belgian dredging, environmental and marine engineering group DEME. This agreement was officialized with the Dutch shipyard Royal IHC.
 
The commissioning of the dredger Minerva is scheduled for late 2016, making it the first dredging vessel that will be equipped with dual fuel engines, in addition to DEME's other trailing suction hopper dredger Scheldt River that will be built and put into service around the same time.
 
Both dual fuel engines run on diesel (MDO) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) to meet both ecological (stricter emission standards) and economic challenges (fluctuating oil prices) to strengthen the global competitiveness of DEME. Each of the dual fuel engines will develop 2,400 kW at 900 rpm and meet IMO Tier 3 emissions standards without the use of after treatment systems such as SCR or oxidation catalysts. The medium speed V-engine belongs to the DZ family
