These innovative diesel-electric cutterdredgers of which the dredging process, such as cutter, pumps, winches and propulsion, is electrically driven by direct water-cooled Bakker frequency drives and Indar electric motors. A special feature of this project is the use of one water-cooled frequency drive for both the pumps and the propellers instead of installing separate drives for these systems.
The heavy cutterdredgers are equipped with the BIMAC alarm & monitoring system. This modular system is designed inhouse by Bakker Sliedrecht.
