Van Oord Strengthens Fleet with New Cutter Suction Dredger

Van Oord has ordered a new cutter suction dredger from Royal IHC.

The vessel, a modular IHC Beaver® 65 DDSP built at the yard in Sliedrecht, will be delivered on 1 April 2016. This cutter suction dredger will be named Biesbosch.

After delivery, the vessel will be deployed at the ‘Zeetoegang IJmuiden’ project, which is part of the locks program of the Dutch Department of Public Works.

This new vessel, with a length of 64 m and a width of more than 12 m, is part of Van Oord’s strategy to invest in replacements for its fleet of cutter suction dredgers.

The Biesbosch will be Van Oord’s third new cutter suction dredger over a period of twelve months.

This accelerated modernization of Van Oord’s fleet of cutter suction dredgers delivers a significant contribution to its sustainability program (through fuel efficiency etc).

The cutter suction dredger has been equipped in accordance with Van Oord’s safety and environmental requirements.
