Van Oord ship management rewarded MSA-Service Noord BV with the retrofit of the Local Control Systems(LCS) of the Wärtsilä W38A engines on board of their trailing suction hopper dredger HAM316.

The scope of the project was:

 The prerequisites were:

 The conversion was executed on the German Drydock yard in Bremerhaven during a dry docking. The installation was done during/together with an engine overhaul to prevent production losses. As the sensors on the engine were in good condition, there was no need to replace them, which improved the lead time and cost price.

The conversion ended on the 9 of august 2018 with a successful sea trail.
