Krasnoye Sormovo Delivers TSHD Sommers

Following successful sea trials, Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard – part of United Shipbuilding Corporation – has completed delivery of the trailing suction hopper dredger Sommers.

The Sommers is the lead vessel in a series of three 1000 m³ TSHDs that are being built for Rosmorport.

The TSHDs were designed by Damen Shipyards Gorinchem, the Netherlands, with the working design documentation provided by Volga-Caspian Design Bureau (MNP Group), Russia.

The other two dredgers, to be named Kronshlot and Kadosh, are scheduled for delivery by the end of 2016.
