DEME has been awarded the Dredging and Port Construction (DPC) “Dredger of the Year” award for the world’s most powerful cutter suction dredger ‘Spartacus’.

The vessel got awarded for its unique combination of power, size and new innovations, DEME said.

‘Spartacus’ will be a new benchmark in the dredging industry. With a total installed capacity of 44.180 kW it will be the most powerful cutter suction dredger that has ever been built.

The vessel’s power will enable her to cut harder soils at speeds that have not been possible before. The cutting force of a newly developed rock cutter teeth system will be twice the power of de “‘d’Artagnan class” of dredgers.

‘Spartacus’ will be able to dredge in waters of up to 45 m, compared to the 35 m depth which is presently the upper limit in the market and the dredger is capable of operating in very remote locations with limited infrastructure, given her fuel autonomy and accommodation capacity.

The vessel is currently under construction at Royal IHC’s Krimpen aan den Ijssel shipyard in the Netherlands, and was launched at the shipyard earlier this month.
