The launching ceremony of new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Arzana, built by Royal IHC for the Abu Dhabi based marine contractor National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC), is set to take place later this month.

The vessel, scheduled to be delivered in the first half of 2018, will have a capacity of 6.000m³ and will form a part of NMDC’s international growth and fleet investment strategy which is aimed at positioning the company as a leader in the industry.

The contract for the dredger was signed in March 2016 and follows successful cooperation between the two companies in the past such as the construction of the 10.919 kW heavy duty cutter suction dredger (CSD) Al Mirfa, built by IHC Merwede (now Royal IHC) for NMDC back in 2000.
