The high-capacity self-propelled СДС-15 dredger ‘Mykolaivets’ has successfully completed sea trials on the Southern Buh River, Nibulon said in its latest release.

In particular, the specialists tested the propulsion units of the starboard side and port side in all modes. In addition, there were tested maneuverability of the vessel, anchor complex, radio communication and navigation.

The vessel’s speed at complete revolutions of engines corresponds to the design speed – 7 knots.

The dredger, launched on September 17, is equipped with an excavator and a hydraulic hammer which is capable of crashing rocks, as well as with a hydraulic pump station, which can transfer 2.000m³ of material per hour to a distance of 1.5 km.

According to the director of Nibulon Shipbuilding and Repair Yard, Dmytro Horbenko, the launched vessel is definitely unique.

“In principle, it has no analogues… This is a self-propelled vessel that can work at depths of up to 15 meters – with a bucket, a milling cutter and a hydraulic hammer,” said Horbenko at the launching ceremony.

This unique vessel is a self-propelled dredger. Its main dimensions are as follows: length – 38m, breadth – 12m, and draught – 1.6m. It is a vessel with a powerful engineering complex,” added the director of Nibulon’s shipping company, Oleksii Lalin.

“This vessel will allow us to deepen the Dnipro River, the Southern Buh River, as well as the water area of ports and terminals to the depths that are necessary for the effective operation of the fleet operating on our rivers and water areas.”

Mykolaivets will start experimental dredging on the Dnipro River, namely at the Dniprodzerzhynsk reservoir during this month.
