Earlier this month, Damen Shipyards Group successfully launched the ice class trailing suction hopper dredger Severnaya Dvina for Russian Port Agency FSUE “Rosmorport”.
Following her delivery, the 2,000 m³ Severnaya Dvina will maintain navigational depths and provide safe shipping in the Arkhangelsk Seaport basin and approaches.
The Severnaya Dvina has a reinforced bow with ICE 1 notation so she can continue dredging in waters approaching freezing point.
Fitted with a complete Damen Dredging Equipment dredge and instrumentation package, the vessel is designed for efficient operation and ease of maintenance, including a Ø600 mm trailing pipe and hydraulic winches, a low pressure Damen inboard dredge pump for the most efficient hopper loading process, telescopic overflow and 5 rod-actuated bottom doors.
