The 2,500 tonnes cutter ladder of DEME’s most powerful cutter suction dredger (CSD) Spartacus has been successfully installed at the Caland Canal in Rozenburg, the Netherlands.

According to DEME, the 57m long cutter ladder is by far the strongest and most sophisticated ever built. The cutter ladder houses the power driving equipment for cutting the hardest rock and drives the cutter head through the soil.

DEME’s new LNG CSD was launched on November 10, 2018, at the Royal IHC shipyard in Krimpen aan den Ijssel in the Netherlands.

With a total installed capacity of 44,180 kW, the vessel is one of the most powerful and environmental friendly CSDs that has ever been built.

The 164m long Spartacus will now return to the Royal IHC shipyard where construction activities will continue, said DEME.
