TSHD ILEMBE to Arrive in Durban in January

The 5,500m3 trailing suction hopper dredger ILEMBE is now on its way from Royal IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk to its home port in Durban.

The ILEMBE is going to be the largest dredging vessel of its kind operating in South Africa and will be deployed to work mainly in the international seaports of South Africa, but may also be deployed elsewhere on the continent.

The new TSHD will join Transnet National Ports Authority (TNPA) existing fleet of IHC-built vessels, which includes the 4,200m3 TSHD ISANDLWANA (delivered in 2010) and the grab hopper dredger ITALENI (delivered in 2014).

According to IHC, the vessel should arrive in Durban around the 12th of January.
