VOSTA LMG is proud to announce that we received the order to convert a mining cutter suction dredger (CSD) from diesel to electric drive.

Mining cutter suction dredger (CSD) from diesel to electric drive

All diesel engines will be replaced by electric motors and their drives, all suitable for the extreme climate conditions at the mine site. The conversion will be done at the mine site in close co-operation with our partner @BADR Marine.

By converting the dredge our client will:
✔ Greatly reduce CO2 emissions on the mine site
✔ Remove all the fuel logistics that were previously required
✔ Greatly reduce the maintenance needs for the dredge

This dredge was designed and delivered by VOSTA LMG in 2006 and has operated successfully since then. Now still in very good shape, it shall be optimized even further with this electrification and including a new automation system. The dredge will work in conjunction with the VOSTA LMG automated, electric boosters already under construction in Jordan.

Do you also want to reduce costs and emissions? Please feel free to contact us.
