Wartsila powers first LNG-fuelled dredger

A new generation “Antigoon” class dredger, called “Scheldt River”, being built by Royal IHC in the Netherlands on behalf of the Belgium’s DEME Group, is to be powered by Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines. 

This will be the first ever dredger to operate on engines capable of utilising either liquefied natural gas (LNG) or conventional marine fuels. The contract with Wärtsilä was signed in July, the company said in a statement.

The 104 metre long vessel will have a hopper volume capacity of approximately 8,000 cubic metres.

The scope of supply includes one 12-cylinder and one 9-cylinder Wärtsilä 34DF engines, two Wärtsilä controllable pitch propellers and two transverse thrusters as well as the company’s LNGPac gas supply and storage system.
