STX Lorient Delivers New Trailing Suction Dredger

An 84m long trailing suction dredger St Pierre, built by the STX Lorient, has been delivered to the Societe de Transports de Fluvio Maritime de l’Ouest.

The complex design of this vessel was developed in conjunction with Holland MT, an engineering and supply company serving international dredging contractors.

Main figures:

– Length overall: 84.10 m

– Maximum breadth: 15.60 m

– Depth : 7.00 metres

– Full load speed: 13 knots

– Dredging depth: 45 m

– Cargo volume : 2,000 m3.

With this step, STX France Lorient has demonstrated once more, the ability of its teams to design and build high-added value ships.


STX France Lorient is a highly innovative yard offering green solutions for ship propulsion, including highly optimized hulls, new generation LNG propulsions, or electric energy storage systems.

Yet worldwide recognized for its know-how for passenger and navy ship markets, the yard is now a reference designer and builder of dredgers.


Holland Marine Technologies BV is a Dutch engineering & contracting company, focused on providing state of the art engineering services and equipment to the dredging industry. HollandMT’s core business is to supply dredge engineering packages, dredge equipment packages, (wear) parts and project support services.
