CASSIOPEIA V, one of the most modern Self-Propelled Cutter Suction Dredgers, starts operation
September 9, 2014
Penta-Ocean Construction Co., Ltd. (President: Takuzo Shimizu) has recently introduced the CASSIOPEIA V, one of the most modern self-propelled cutter suction dredgers, which was completed and delivered to Penta-Ocean Construction in Singapore in August of this year, for construction works on the Tuas Finger One Reclamation Project that the company was awarded as a member of joint venture from Singapore’s Jurong Town Corporation. The CASSIOPEIA V is now ready to start its service soon.
Cutter suction dredger is a work vessels that use a cutter head attached to the ladder tip to dredge the seabed and suck up the dredged material along with the seawater with a dredging pump and transfer it via a pipe line. The CASSIOPEIA V marks the first large cutter suction dredger constructed in 36 years, representing a new generation of flagship that fuses the traditional know-how long held by Penta-Ocean Construction with the latest European technology. The introduction of most modern cutter suction dredger will ensure high production rate of construction works in the project.
Since opening our Singapore Office in 1965 we have been involved with numerous large scale projects in the region. Ongoing plans for various large scale infrastructure projects in Singapore include port construction, and rail, road and energy-related facility construction works. These projects and more make the country a vitally important market for our overseas business arm, and we will continue to proactively expand the business pursuing these opportunities.
The self-propelled cutter suction dredger CASSIOPEIA V
Fully equipped with the most modern technology
The CASSIOPEIA V marks the first large cutter suction dredger constructed in 36 years, representing a new generation of flagship that fuses the traditional know-how long held by Penta-Ocean Construction with the latest European technology.
Outstanding dredging capabilities
Equipped with a large-capacity dredging pump that is roughly 1.4 times larger in size compared to the largest cutter suction dredger in Japan (DE8000PS), making it possible to transport large amounts of dredged material long distances. And the large-scale cutter ladder and the strong cutter drive unit help it excel for hard soil dredging.
Ability to work even in severe sea conditions
The large spud and spud tensioning system make it possible to perform dredging work even in severe sea conditions.
Auto dredging mode for high levels of construction accuracy
The automatic operation of dredging apparatus such as the swing winch and ladder winch makes it possible to achieve greater construction accuracy.
Self prorulsion system for greater mobility
This self-propelled cutter suction dredger comes equipped with the azimuth thruster and the spud tilting system for greater mobility, expanding its navigation area to the open sea to allow for a greater potential for use worldwide.
