Alfa Laval’s T35 for Two TSHDs

Alfa Laval, a supplier of of products and solutions for heat transfer, separation and fluid handling, recently delivered its T35 gasketed plate heat exchangers for the central cooling systems onboard two trailing suction hopper dredgers.

The next-generation T35s have been installed during the last dry-docking this year.

With the new T35s in service, the two dredgers will have the T35’s eight patents and other innovations at work to deliver more uptime, longer gasket lifetime and lower maintenance and repair costs. All that adds up to 100% cooling capacity and the lowest possible total cost of ownership.

With the vessels operating at full capacity, 1000 cubic meters per hour of seawater is pumped through the T35 to transfer all the waste heat of the ship systems.

Marcel de Jong, Senior Marine & Diesel Engineer at Alfa Laval Benelux, said: “Its patented flow distribution minimizes the risk on fouling and erosion, and innovative design features contribute to achieving the lowest possible operational costs.”

When dredging the seawater contains very high concentrations of abrasive silt and sand, making cooling equipment prone to erosion-corrosion and fouling.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
