The naming ceremony of Charlock, Van den Herik’s new trailing suction hopper dredger, took place on February 6th in Harlingen.
The vessel was built by Barkmeijer Shipyards and will start her first assignment in March 2016. The first Charlock’s task will include the coastal replenishment operations on the Dutch coast near Bloemendaal Zandvoort.
Mrs. Struijk Anke van den Herik, daughter of founder Jan Hendrik van den Herik, performed the ceremony.
Van den Herik from Sliedrecht is a medium-sized player in the hydraulic engineering market and it is active in Europe and Africa.
