DIESEL ELECTRIC HOPPER DREDGE IS FLEXIBLE, EFFICIENT, MANEUVERABLE

The paper discusses the electric drive systems for propulsion and dredging and the unusual nature of the thyristor installation for controlling the propellers of the dredge. A series of special maneuvering and steaming trials were carried out to test the propulsion installation and the diesel engines that supply the primary energy. Electricity is supplied by two main generator sets and a standby set. When the vessel is in port, the standby generator can supply the power required for general purposes.
