The launching ceremony of the 1.840 m³ twin screw trailing suction hopper dredger “MAHURY” took place at MTG Dolphin Shipyard in Varna, Bulgaria, on August 10, 2015.
The new TSHD is Dutch Dredging’s fourth IHC-built vessel, after the ALBATROS, LESSE and AMAZONE. The MAHURY is an upgraded version of the ALBATROS, which was delivered in 2013, and was well received by the customer.
The MAHURY includes two dredging marks in its design that allows the vessel to operate at different distances from the shore, while still adhering to regulations. The first dredging mark is for operating within 15 miles from shore, and the second within 8 miles from shore.
The vessel will be capable of dredging with one trailing suction pipe up to depths of 30 meters, delivering the spoil either into the hopper, or directly overboard.
