The Netherlands: Van Oord Lays Keel of Second Self-Propelled Cutter Suction Dredger

At IHC’s shipyard in Heusden the keel was laid of Van Oord’s second self-propelled cutter suction dredger. Ms G. Lievense – de Vries performed the keel-laying ceremony in honour of her husband project manager Kees Lievense who passed away earlier this year.

This new vessel will be the sister to the Athena, the self-propelled cutter suction dredger that is currently under construction. Like the Athena, the new cutter suction dredger will be built at the IHC shipyard in Kinderdijk, the Netherlands.

The new cutter suction dredger will be 130 m long, with installed power of 24,650 KW, and will be, along with its sister vessel the Athena, amongst the most modern and powerful self-propelling cutter suction dredgers in the world.

This substantial investment comprises part of Van Oord’s comprehensive new investment scheme for 2011-2015.
