Engineering, delivery, and commissioning of the electrical power plant and auxiliary electrical installations for the worlds most powerful CSD
The electrical drive system has a very high power density, yielding a lot of power out of a small footprint

Creating the power electrical plant for the world’s most powerful CSD

With a total installed power of 44.180 kW, ‘Spartacus’ will be the most powerful Cutter Suction Dredger that has ever been built. The vessel’s power will enable her to cut harder soils at speeds that have not been possible before. Bakker Sliedrecht is responsible for delivering the power electrical plant that will generate and distribute power throughout the CSD. We are also responsible for the integration of the entire electrical installation.

Low voltage multidrive systems

The Spartacus will be equipped with the brand-new ABB ACS 880 liquid-cooled low voltage multidrive system. The new model of ABB has a very high power density, yielding a lot of power out of a small footprint. The ABB ACS 880 is maintenance friendly and already compliant with future regulations.

Delivery in 2019

The Spartacus will be delivered to DEME in 2019.
