    NIBULON launched its unique dredger

    NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard says it has launched the second vessel this month – a unique high-capacity self-propelled СДС-15 dredger with a symbolic name MYKOLAIVETS. The ceremony was held on September 17.

    The event was held at NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard without celebrations with the participation of NIBULON’s shipbuilders.

    According to director of NIBULON shipbuilding and repair yard Dmytro Horbenko, the launched vessel is definitely unique. It has no analogues,

    "In principle, it has no analogues... This is a self-propelled vessel that can work at depths of up to 15 meters – with a bucket, a milling cutter and a hydraulic hammer. That is, it is universal. Two self-propelled dredger pontoons are being constructed for it in Kherson. That is, it will be a high-capacity complex for dredging we have not in Ukraine. This is very important for our country. There was a very difficult preparatory part, because it was the first time for both the designers and for us. And as it turned out, it was the first time for our western suppliers too: we did not expect that they will have so many difficulties to manufacture this rather unique equipment the vessel is equipped with”.

    As director of NIBULON's shipping company Oleksii Lalin said, MYKOLAIVETS will be capable of effective dredging on the Dnipro River,

    "This unique vessel is a self-propelled dredger. Its main dimensions are as follows: length – 38 m, breadth – 12 m, and draught – 1.6 m. It is a vessel with a powerful engineering complex. It is equipped with an excavator with a hydraulic hammer that can crush rocks, as well as a hydraulic pump station, which can transfer 2,000 m3 of pulp per hour to a distance of 1.5 km .This vessel will allow us to deepen the Dnipro River, the Southern Buh River, as well as the water area of ports and terminals to the depths that are necessary for the effective operation of the fleet operating on our rivers and water areas".

    In addition, the vessel is built according to the highest European ecological standards: in accordance to MARPOL 73/78, Rules for Prevention of Pollution from Ships, and the State Sanitary Rules for Seagoing Ships of Ukraine.

    MYKOLAIVETS will start experimental dredging on the Dnipro River, namely at the Dniprodzerzhynsk reservoir next month. 

    At present the company's fleet numbers 60 units. However, due to modernization of the shipyard and cooperation with the European Investment Bank, NIBULON has the opportunity to build up to 15 units of cargo fleet per year and increase its fleet up to 100 units in the following years. The next stage is construction of the next series of non-self-propelled vessels with a cargo capacity of 5 thousand tons each and a loader. The projects of the multipurpose seagoing tugs with the capacity of 3 500 hp have been ordered and are being designed. It is planned to build them in 2018/2019.
