Alewijnse Awarded TSHD Spauwer Deal

Alewijnse Marine Systems is undertaking the complete electrical outfitting of the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Spauwer, developed in-house by Den Herder Seaworks.

The works are taking place at Shipyard Trico B.V. in Rotterdam.

The TSHD Spauwer is a large and highly sophisticated hopper dredger with a length of 142 meters. It is designed for deep water mineral mining in concession areas beyond the continental shelf. The hull of the TSHD Spauwer was launched on December 15, 2015 and delivery is expected at the end of this year.

Alewijnse Marine Systems, responsible for the complete electrical outfitting of the vessel, has been contracted for the supply, installation, connection and commissioning of approximately 110 km of cable, the review of the engineering package, the manufacture and supply of the distribution boards, the reduction and conversion of the switchboards and the programming of the alarm monitoring and control system and the dredging equipment.

Winning the contract to undertake the complete electrical outfitting of this sophisticated vessel is a welcome vote of confidence in Alewijnse and its capabilities,” said Alewijnse Project Manager Mitch Opmeer. “Our ability to deploy the right numbers of staff with the necessary skills to wherever they are required gives clients like Den Herder Seaworks the reassurance that their exact needs will always be met, at the agreed quality and pricing levels.

The company will also supply and install a number of fire detection systems together with the ship’s transformers, batteries and battery chargers, the lightning installations including the navigation lightning, the switchboards, the tank measurement system and the PLC equipment for the alarm monitoring and control system and the dredging equipment.
