IHC Merwede Confirms Deal with Boskalis (The Netherlands)

IHC Merwede has been awarded the contract for the design, construction and delivery of a 23,684kW self-propelled cutter suction dredger (CSD) from Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis). The innovative new dredging vessel will be one of the largest CSDs of its kind in the world.

As part of the close cooperation and working relationship between Boskalis and IHC Merwede, much attention has been paid to the design of this latest CSD in terms of safety, the environment and increased operational workability. A particular feature of the vessel is the widening of the aft ship in order to reduce the draught.
