C-Job launches tailored series of cutter suction dredgers

Ship design firm C-Job Naval Architects has launched a new series of mid-range cutter suction dredgers (CSD) which can be tailored to suit the specific requirements of operators. A wide range of options includes stationary or self-propelled vessels using conventional or dual-fuel engines, anchor boom arrangements, barge loading systems, motion compensation systems in the spud carrier, and spud tilting arrangements.

The series has been launched with the unveiling of a self-propelled CSD with cutter power of 3,500 hp (2.6 MW) and total installed power of about 26,000 hp (19 MW). Two dredge pumps on deck and one submerged pump on the cutter ladder enable a maximum dredging depth of 95 feet (29m).

“The new CSD series is a bold design that brings industry-leading performance in a dynamic modular package,” declared Todd Allen, vice president of Business Development at C-Job. “With advanced features like motion compensation and a wide range of options, it demonstrates the start of what is possible with the C-Job CSD series.”
