Hydraulic driven, cowled rudder propeller (4 blades x 950 mm dia), mounted on a sliding lifting frame, steerable using hydraulic cylinders. The lifting frame allows vertical movement of the propeller unit by 1000 mm. A shear pin allows the unit to til upwards by 400 in the event of impact while travelling in the fwd direction.
Steel control cabin in aft, mounted on a base frame with pivot/wheel assembly to retain the cabin in a horizontal position as the split hopper is opened.
The cabin houses the propulsion unit control console, the control panel for the hydralic hopper opening cylinders as well as communication and navigation equipment and basic crew facilities.
The control console for the engines provides separate functions for each propulsion unit, controlling:
– Diesel engine start, speed and emergency stop
– Propeller speed
– Propelor direction of rotation
– Steering angle (+65 to -65)
– Propeller lift
– Emergency stop
– Alarms units with buzzer, test and alarm release functions for: Low hydraulic oil level, Low boost pressure and High temperature/overheating
This split hopper barge has been fitted out as a self-propelled barge for the transporting of small volumes of dredge materials. It can cater for soft and rock materials, with a capacity of 350t when full. The hopper is also equipped with marine radios and a disposal tracking system.
