  • In May 2015 we started at our yard with assembly of the main parts of a Caterpillar 6090 excavator with two Cummins QSKTTA60 engines of 1678 kW each.

  • We modified/extended this base to the BK 12700 DD Greenline excavator, as designed by the engineers of Boskalis.
    (End December Ravestein picked up the complete excavator.)

  • We used our inland marine experience for isolating the engineroom to achieve maximum noise reduction.

  • Both 80 tonnes deck cranes have been overhauled in our workshop.

  • Our electrical team has installed a Pat Kruger load measuring system and a remote control on both deck cranes.

  • On the excavator we installed an hydraulic emergency system with radio remote control.
