Home' Work Boat World : October 2015 Contents MAN engines ordered for world’s largest cutter-suction dredger
The Jan De Nul Group is set to expand its
fleet with a self-propelled, cutter-suction
dredger to be built at the Uljanik
Brodogradiliste shipyard in Croatia.
The vessel, currently designated
‘JDN8069’, will feature two engines as
well as three step-up RENK Rheine
gearboxes for a diesel-electric plant. RENK
will also deliver the gearboxes for the
cutter-head drive as well as for the
dredger and booster pumps.
Upon completion, the vessel will be the
largest of its type in the world.
Among the 56 engines MAN Diesel and
Turbo currently has on order for various
marine applications, 14 alone are bound for
installation aboard cutter- and hopper-
dredger newbuildings for customers in
Benelux and China. All engines will be
built at MAN’s main facility in Germany.
The engines are equipped with in-house-
developed technologies. This includes
exhaust-gas turbochargers, electro nic fuel-
injection systems, electronic hardware and
software for engine control, monitoring
and diagnosis in the form of MAN Diesel
and Turbo’s SaCoSone system.
At 151.3 metres long and 36.0 metres
wide the new vessel will feature over
40,000kW in total diesel installed power.
The ‘JDN8069’ is due for delivery at the
beginning of 2017.
