Boskalis Expands Dredging Fleet with Magnor

The largest and most efficient backhoe dredger in the world, Magnor, has docked at the Boskalis’ main office in Papendrecht, the Netherlands.

The vessel, built by Ravestein, includes all the necessary equipment such as a large deck workshop, stores, machinery and an accommodation fully outfitted to receive a crew of eight.

With the spuds of 40 m length, she will be able to dredge to depths of 32 m. The biggest bucket will have a capacity of 45 m³, nearly 1½ times the volume of a 20’ ISO container.

The excavator, based on a Caterpillar 6090, was completely re-built by and to suit Boskalis needs. The total installed power on the excavator is 4,100 kW.

An interesting innovation is the use of water cooling for the engines and hydraulics. It delivers huge improvements in terms of fuel consumption and, above all, noise reduction.

The detailed design of the dredger was provided in-house by Ravestein in close cooperation with the Boskalis team. The dredger and all its components are built according to Bureau Veritas classification.
