Van Oord Orders Two Dredgers

Van Oord has ordered two trailing suction hopper dredgers with a hopper volume of approximately 17,000 m3.

Spanish shipbuilder Construcciones Navales del Norte S.L. (LaNaval) will build the ships at its yard in Bilbao. Both vessels will be delivered in 2017.

The dredgers will have a hopper capacity of approximately 17,000 m3, a length of 158 meters and a width of 36 meters. The vessels will be equipped with two suction pipes with submerged e-driven dredge pumps, two shore discharge dredge pumps, six bottom doors and a total installed power of 23,680 kW. They will have accommodation for 38 persons.

These modern vessels will strengthen the mid-class section of our hopper fleet. The vessels are characterized by a large deadweight in combination with a shallow draft, which makes them very competitive in various markets, including the market for coastal protection projects,” said COO Paul Verheul.

Van Oord has designed the vessels in-house in cooperation with C-Job Naval Architects.

During the design phase, special attention was paid to the energy-efficiency of the vessels. The design includes several aspects which result in substantial reductions in fuel consumption and consequently a fall in CO2 emissions. The vessels are being equipped with innovative and sustainable systems and will obtain a Green Passport and Clean Ship Notation.

The order is in line with Van Oord’s innovative investment program and is part of the replacement program of older trailing suction hopper dredgers. The new vessels are a contribution to the further modernization of Van Oord’s fleet and mark the start of a new generation of trailing suction hopper dredgers.
