CSSC begins construction of China’s first LNG DF trailing suction hopper dredger

30 Dec 2022

China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) on Wednesday (28 December) said the construction of a 15,000-cubic-meter LNG dual fuel trailing suction hopper dredger has begun and has entered production stage. 

The vessel will be China’s first large-sized dredger independently developed by China that is able to run on LNG. It was designed and developed by the 708th Research Institute of CSSC.

The unnamed dredger will feature double propellers and will be capable of running on both light diesel oil and LNG. 

It can meet the emission requirements of IMO Tier III in gas mode and IMO Tier II in fuel mode. Discharge, oil pollutant discharge, garbage discharge, ozone substance discharge, incineration discharge, harmful anti-fouling system and other aspects can meet the relevant control requirements proposed by the latest version of CCS “Rules for Green-Eco Ships”.
