New Damen’s Dredger for Noordland BV

Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam is constructing an innovative razor shell dredger for the Dutch fishing cooperative YE 118 Noordland BV.

The 43-meter vessel, sharing the same name as the cooperative, shows how a standard Maaskant design can be modified to meet the ever changing requirements of the modern fishing industry.

We are very happy to have been given the opportunity to build such a cutting-edge vessel,” said Damen Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam Director Frits van Dongen.

The Noordland will be able to harvest razor shells in water up to 20 meters deep – something that is made possible by the advanced pumping system.”

The pump will be connected to a 30-meter suction pipe, with a 1-meter wide basket at one end that the vessel will position over the target area.

As well as installation of the specialized fishing equipment, the yard’s scope also includes fitting of the vessel’s generators and propulsion system as well as carpentry, electronics and piping.

Delivery is planned for mid-October.
