- Business & Finance
The recently-launched ice class trailing suction hopper dredger “Severnaya Dvina” has just passed through the Malacca Strait and is heading for Rotterdam where the final testing of the ship’s dredging equipment will be performed.
The vessel was built by Damen for the Russian Port Agency FSUE “Rosmorport”.
Fitted with a complete Damen Dredging Equipment dredge and instrumentation package, the vessel is designed for efficient operation and ease of maintenance, including a Ø600 mm trailing pipe and hydraulic winches, a low pressure Damen inboard dredge pump for the most efficient hopper loading process, telescopic overflow and 5 rod-actuated bottom doors.
Following delivery, the 2,000m³ Severnaya Dvina will maintain navigational depths and provide safe shipping in the Arkhangelsk Seaport basin and approaches.
