A 1,840m³ capacity twin-screw trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) MAHURY – built by Royal IHC at MTG Dolphin – was named last week in Varna, Bulgaria.
The new TSHD is Baggerbedrijf de Boer – Dutch Dredging’s fourth IHC-built vessel.
Dutch Dredging named the vessel after its tradition of reusing the names of sold or scrapped ships.
The MAHURY is a river in French Guiana, South America, where Dutch Dredging has a long-term contract for maintaining the depth of the approach to the seaport of Dégrad des Cannes.
For many years this maintenance project has been carried out by the previous MAHURY.
