Van Oord’s New Custom Dredger Ready for Delivery

Work on Van Oord’s new CSD 650 custom suction dredger is nearly completed with final touches being made on the 60m dredger, the Ural River.

Designed and delivered by Damen Dredging Equipment in Nijkerk, the Netherlands, the vessel will leave the yard at the end of January and travel overland to the Caspian Sea, from where it will begin operations in April.

Following the recent order, the work on the 60m dredger began immediately in order to bring her up to the required specification. Modifications included the adding of a bow to enable a change of her classification from sheltered waters to coastal operations.

The vessel is also being fitted with additional tank capacities to allow her to operate without support for an extended period of time in the remote locations where she will be working.

The fact that this particular CSD 650 was already equipped with anchor booms to allow easy moving of the side anchors was very helpful in minimizing the time required for modifications, as the shallow waters in which it will be operating are not suitable for a Multi Cat to provide support.

Van Oord also required a number of safety and environmental features to comply with its exacting standards, which Damen has fulfilled.
