Kooiman Signs Dredger Conversion Contract

Scheepswerf Gebr. Kooiman BV, a subsidiary of The Kooiman Group, has inked a contract to complete a conversion project for the trailing suction hopper dredger Ostsee.

The conversion involves the replacement of dredging installation’s electrical drives with the direct diesel drives.

Two jet water pumps with electric motors will be replaced by two new Nijhuis pumps with a higher working pressure.

The electric motor of one dredge pump will be replaced by a 1,600kW Mitsubishi S16R2-T2MPTAW diesel engine. The diesel engines will be supplied by Koedood Diesel Service.

The engineering is carried out by Scheepsbouwkundig Ontwerpbureau Kooiman BV in Zwijndrecht and the electrical installation will be undertaken by Technisch Buro Mous BV, also from Zwijndrecht.

The actual works will be carried out at the sister company Scheepswerf Hoebee BV.

This dredging vessel was built by the Peene-Werft in 1995.
