VIDEO: Van Oord’s New CSD Named Biesbosch

In the presence of guests and employees, Ms Lydia van de Kerk, the wife of CFO Arjan van de Kerk, named Van Oord’s latest cutter suction dredger Biesbosch on 7 April 2016.

The ceremony was held on the jetty at Van Oord’s Rotterdam office.

The cutter suction dredger Biesbosch was built by Royal IHC at its yard in Sliedrecht, the Netherlands.

The vessel is the biggest of the standard range of CSDs built by IHC for stock, measuring 64m in length and more than 12m in width.

To meet Van Oord’s specific needs, it is equipped with a cutter platform and an IHC Spud Guard® to increase safety and enhance performance when operating at sea.

As of mid-April, Biesbosch will be deployed for dredging works at the Zeetoegang IJmond project, the construction of the new sea lock at IJmuiden, which is part of the locks program of the Dutch Department of Public Works.

This dredger is Van Oord’s third new cutter suction dredger over a period of twelve months.
