Bakker Sliedrecht has received an order from Jan De Nul Group to deliver ten IP 44 class Cummins generators.

The generators will generate all electric power on board tree new trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) that are currently being built at Keppel Singmarine in China.

“Jan De Nul Group requires the new generators to comply with IP 44 class, protection against splashing water. Traditionally, air-water coolers are used to comply with IP 44. This solution requires additional facilities, such as cool-water pipes that affect the entire vessel,” Bakker said in its release.

All generators will undergo an individual heat run, simulating their operational conditions and Jan De Nul Group will be present during this part of the factory acceptance test.

Bakker Sliedrecht will commission all generators on board the trailing suction hopper dredgers in China.

The design of these vessels is based on the 3,400m³ TSHD Alvar Nuñez Cabeça de Vaca and Sebastiano Caboto, built in 2011, and successfully operating since. The vessels combine a shallow draught with high manoeuvrability, making them very suitable for working in confined areas, Jan De Nul said.

The TSHDs will be delivered to Jan De Nul Group in 2017 and 2018.
