Bakker Sliedrecht to Extend Lifetime of CSD Huta 4

Saudi Arabia’s dredging operator, Huta Marine recently awarded Dutch system integrator Bakker Sliedrecht with a lifetime extension project for the electrical installation of the CSD Huta 4.

According to Bakker Sliedrecht, the aim of the project is to extend the lifetime of the 36-year-old cutter suction dredger with 15 years while increasing the efficiency of production.

The company will be responsible for all main electrical installations during this lifetime extension project. The installations will be designed and assembled at Bakker Sliedrecht’s workshop in Sliedrecht with the commissioning to be taken by the company in Saudi Arabia.

Key installations that are being replaced or upgraded during this project are:

  • Electrical drive systems:
    Ladder Winch
    Ladder Pump
    Cutter
    Side winches
  • BIMAC (Bakker Integrated Modular Alarm Control) alarm installation;
  • Cutter automation;
  • Engine control room desk;
  • AC electric motors;
  • AC generators.

During this lifetime extension project, Bakker Sliedrecht is also improving the production efficiency of the Huta 4. The existing analog controls are being replaced by new digital controls, increasing the accuracy of operators. Moreover, the new controls are maintenance free, which will lower the operational maintenance costs for Huta.

As spare parts of the existing dredging controls are no longer available, Bakker Sliedrecht will also deliver a new dredging control desk with renewed dredging automation.The replaced dredging automation system allows the operators to control the movements of the cutter more accurately. It also offers the operators real-time productivity information to monitor the dredging process.

The lifetime extension of the Huta 4 is scheduled for delivery second quarter of 2018.
