Van Oord Strengthens Fleet with TSHD Contender

Van Oord, a Dutch contracting company that specializes in dredging and land reclamation, has acquired trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) ‘Contender’ from Dutch Abeko Marine.

The vessel has a hopper capacity of 2,680 m3.

This purchase allows Van Oord to strengthen its fleet in the small trailing suction hopper dredger segment.

“Dravo S.A., our Spanish subsidiary, will deploy the vessel in the Mediterranean and north west Europe to solidify our market position,” said Executive Board member Niels de Bruijn.

The Contender was built in 1998. Abeko Marine converted the vessel into a trailing suction hopper dredger in 2011.

The vessel is 88 m long en 16 m wide. With a draught of less than 6 m, it is especially suited to dredging operations in shallow water.
