Keppel O&M delivers LNG-fuelled dredger to Dutch Van Oord
Singapore-based Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M), through its wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel FELS (Keppel FELS), has delivered the second of three LNG-fuelled dredgers to Dutch maritime company, Van Oord, it said on December 13.
Named Vox Apolonia, the dredger is identical to the first dredger, Vox Ariane, delivered by Keppel O&M in April this year. The third dredger for Van Oord, Vox Alexia, is on track for delivery in 2023, the company said.
Built to the requirements of the International Maritime Organisation's Tier III regulations, the Vox Apolonia has a hopper capacity of 10,500 m3 and includes several features that reduce fuel consumption and carbon emissions, Keppel O&M said. It is also equipped with sustainable systems and has obtained the Green Passport and Clean Ship Notation from Bureau Veritas.
