Keppel Delivers Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger to Jan De Nul
Keppel Offshore & Marine Ltd has delivered its fifth Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger to Jan De Nul Group with a perfect safety record. Ortelius, a 6000 cubic meters TSHD, is the fifth dredger that Keppel O&M has delivered to Jan De Nul Group, following the delivery of three 3500 cubic meters TSHDs and one 6000m3 TSHD last year. All five are Ultra-Low Emission vessels and the world's first European Union Stage V dredgers.
In line with Keppel’s Vision 2030 which puts sustainability at the heart of our strategy, Keppel O&M is providing value-added solutions to support the reduction of carbon emissions in the industry.
Ortelius is fitted with a two-stage filtering technique for exhaust gases. Built to the requirements of the EU Stage V and International Maritime Organisation's Tier III regulations, Ortelius is diesel-electric driven and able to dredge to a maximum depth of 35m. It features a shallow draught, is highly manoeuvrable, and is suitable for working in confined areas.
