Zero emission dredging is here

The first Electric Cutter Suction Dredger has made her appearance thanks to Damen Shipyards Group; turning the possibility of zero emissions dredging projects into a reality.

Based on Damen’s successful standardised shipbuilding philosophy the new ECSD 650 is a modular dredger, dismountable for transportation and easy assembly in the remotest of locations. The electric motors that power the vessel’s dredge system provide a significant reduction in noise, adding an extra tier of sustainability and ensuring the dredger’s suitability for projects in densely populated and environmentally sensitive areas.

On a conventional CSD 650, the rear side pontoons provide buoyancy; in the ECSD the starboard side pontoon becomes an electrical nerve centre. The dredger’s low voltage system equals easy maintenance with no requirement for special crew training. Meanwhile, the associated reduction in vibrations during dredging ensure a comfortable experience for those on board.

Damen sales manager Sjoerd de Bruijn says, “The ECSD is just one example of the products and services that Damen is pioneering as we fix our focus on our goal: to be the most sustainable shipbuilder.”
