VIDEO: Royal IHC Lays Keel for CSD Spartacus
The keel laying ceremony for DEME’s cutter suction dredger SPARTACUS took place earlier this week at Royal IHC shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, the Netherlands.
This event marked a milestone in the construction of the most powerful CSD that has ever been built.
SPARTACUS will also be the world’s first LNG-powered CSD.
The CSD will be able to dredge in waters of up to 45m, compared to the 35m depth which is presently the upper limit in the market.
