Record CSD to dredge unprecedented depths

A giant dredger set to operate in a port expansion project on the island of Kalimantan will be the largest stationary dredger owned by an Indonesian operator. The swift delivery of the CSD650 (Cutter Suction Dredger) has been made possible due to Damen’s stock program.

Damen Shipyards signed a contract to deliver the CSD650 to the Indonesian dredging operator Pelayaran Fortuna Nusantara Megajaya (PFNM), earlier this month. The company also operates the Barito Equator, a 2,500 m3 Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger built in Indonesia 10 years ago using a Damen design package and the largest hopper dredger ever built in Indonesia. Now the same operator can add a new record; this CSD650 will be the largest Cutter Suction Dredger in Indonesia and will be able to reach unprecedented dredging depths. The stationary dredger is an expansion of the operator’s current fleet.

Damen’s standard CSD650 will be fitted with a 700 kW cutter head which can work in water depths up to -25m. The suction ladder incorporates a submerged dredge pump, which works in series with the inboard dredge pump. 3,938 kW of installed power ensures an impressive discharge distance and dredge production of 7,000 m3/h on average. The overall length of the dredger is 70m, resulting in an impressive swing width of 71m, and it has a weight of 660 tons.

Currently, the new CSD650 is being finalised and equipped to specification in the Netherlands. The dredger will be transported from the Damen Dredging Equipment shipyard early next year. Gysbert Boersma, Damen Shipyard Sales Manager, states, “It is a real pleasure to be able to deliver the dredger at such a short notice. Our fruitful discussions with the Indonesian owner have resulted in the delivery of a complete dredging package including spares and training. This will all ensure a fast deployment of the new dredger on site”.
