PHOTO: NMDC’s New Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger

As we already reported last week, Royal IHC (IHC) and National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) have signed a contract for the construction of the first custom-build state-of-the-art trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) in the Gulf area.

The 6,000m³ TSHD is a tailor-made solution that combines shallow draft and a large dredging depth with high manoeuvrability, and was specifically designed for operating in high temperatures. The design also includes one man bridge and a forward looking multi beam survey system.

The order also includes a full life-cycle support program in combination with condition-based monitoring, which ensures the long and sustainable operation of the vessel. IHC will also provide training for NMDC’s crew.

The new TSHD will be delivered somewhere in 2017.
