The technology group Wartsila has supplied the full propulsion package for the new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Arzana.

The vessel is owned by National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) from Abu Dhabi and has been specially designed to operate in high ambient temperatures.

The 6.000m³ capacity TSHD, launched in September 2017, was designed by the Royal IHC in close cooperation with NMDC.

“This modern generation dredger was designed to operate reliably, efficiently and with flexibility in demanding conditions. We are, therefore, proud that Wärtsilä propulsion machinery was selected as being the most suitable for meeting these operational requirements,” said Ayman Zreik Farhat, General Manager, Sales, Middle East, Wartsila Marine Solutions.

“We are familiar with Wartsila’s capabilities, and we know and trust their ability to provide us with the right solutions for this latest addition to the NMDC fleet,” said Mohamed Afan, Senior Assets & investment Director, NMDC.

The customized solution combines a shallow draft and a deep dredging depth with high maneuverability.

The scope of Wartsila’s supply, which comprises two 8-cylinder Wartsila 32 engines specially tuned for dredging operations, two controllable pitch propeller systems, and two tunnel thrusters, provides the required power and maneuverability.
