DEME orders LNG-powered dredgers

Belgium’s DEME said it has ordered two new trailing suction hopper dredgers with dual fuel engines and LNG tanks.

Built according to a “green design the two vessels will have a ‘Green Passport’ and a ‘Clean Design’ notation“. The ships will be equipped with dual fuel engines and LNG tanks, “ensuring compliance with all of the international emission requirements within the Sulphur Emission Control Areas”, the company said in a statement.

Dual fuel technology enables engines to operate on either diesel or LNG.

Both trailing suction hopper dredgers will be built by the Dutch shipyard Royal IHC. They will be operational before the end of 2016.

Earlier this year the DEME announced its order of two smaller “green” vessels, the self-propelled jack-up vessel ‘Apollo’ and the multipurpose cable-laying ship ‘Living Stone’, which will both service the offshore energy market and are also equipped with dual fuel main engines.
