Royal IHC has just unveiled this beautiful photo from the keel laying ceremony of world’s most powerful cutter suction dredger, the ‘Spartacus’.
The keel laying ceremony took place last week at IHC shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, The Netherlands, marking the milestone in the construction of the most powerful CSD that has ever been built.
The 164m long ‘Spartacus’ will be the world’s first dual fuel cutter suction dredger with a Green Passport and Clean Design notation.
According to DEME, ‘Spartacus’ 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.
Delivery of this environmentally friendly cutter suction dredger is scheduled for early or mid-2019.
