Bakker Sliedrecht Makes TSHD Schenge Energy-Efficient

first_imgBakker Sliedrecht has won a contract to make the new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Schenge energy-efficient. The Sliedrecht based electrical drive specialist will supply and install a shaft generator on the main engine, aimed to generate the electricity for the entire dredging installation. As a result, the ship works more efficiently, needs less maintenance and has an optimized lay-out.The Schenge, owned by Faasse Groep, has a hopper capacity of approximately 2600m³, divided over two holds so that it can carry two types of product.For the electric drive of the dredging installation and jet pumps, a shaft generator with matching frequency drive from Bakker Sliedrecht is added, which is connected to the existing main engine by means of a new PTO shaft. The vessel has an adjustable propeller (CPP).According to Bakker, because the main engine runs at a low load for propulsion during dredging, this power can be used for the electrical dredging installation.Converting general cargo vessel to hopper dredger at Holland Shipyards GroupAfter a comprehensive acquisition period, Faasse Groep and Holland Shipyards Group have come to an agreement on the conversion of former general cargo vessel Mandeo into the trailing suction hopper dredger Schenge.Holland Shipyards Group was contracted to convert the vessel hopper, build a jointly designed dredging system and execute various other works on board.The conversion is in line with the Faasse Groep’s expansion plans, and will aid in the consolidation of its position in the raw materials market.After her completion in 2020, the vessel will be deployed for sand extraction in the North Sea.Image source: hollandshipyardsgroup.comlast_img read more

Cricket News Cheteshwar Pujara’s milestones with Rahul Dravid is the mother of all coincidences

first_imgNew Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara was earmarked as the successor to Rahul Dravid when the India batsman announced his retirement from international cricket in 2012. Pujara had many of Dravid’s traits, which included calmness, tight technique, solid defence and the ability to bat at No.3 for the Indian cricket team in Test cricket. During the Adelaide game against Australia, Pujara cemented his reputation as the Wall of the Indian cricket team when he scored a century on the opening day of the series to give India something to smile. Following his knock, Pujara reached the milestone of 5000 runs but it also created several remarkable coincidences with Dravid’s record.Pujara achieved the 5000-run milestone in his 108th innings, the same number it took for Dravid to reach the landmark. The coincidences of records goes even further. When Pujara reached 3000 runs, he achieved it in 67 innings, the same as Dravid. When the Saurashtra right-hander went past 4000 runs in Tests, he took 84 innings to achieve it. Remarkably, Dravid took the same amount of time.Read More | Cheteshwar Pujara shows value of defence and application in AdelaideThe coincidences do not end there. Pujara’s 123 was his first hundred in Australia and 16th overall. Dravid, during the 2003 Adelaide Test, smashed 233, which was his 16th Test century and also his first in Australia. In a twisted way, even getting to the milestone was same. Dravid hooked Jason Gillespie to fine leg for a six to reach his hundred while Pujara hooked Hazlewood over fine leg to go past 5000 runs.Read More | Nathan Lyon concedes unwanted world record, enters this double centurySpeaking in the press conference at the end of the day, Pujara said this was the most important knock of his life. “I can’t rate if it was one of the best but the teammates were appreciating, they were saying it was one of the best,” Pujara said.With so many milestones achieved in a similar way, it can be safely surmised that Pujara is the new Dravid in Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team.
