New TSHD Severnaya Dvina Officially Introduced in Rotterdam

FSUE Rosmorport’s new trailing suction hopper dredger, the Severnaya Dvina, has been officially presented to the public at the Damen Shiprepair yard in Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

The vessel – built by Damen’s Song Thu Corporation shipyard in Da Nang – will today set sail for Arkhangelsk, Russia.

The main purpose of this 2,000 m³ TSHD will be to maintain navigation depths and provide safe shipping in the port basin and approaches.

According to the shipbuilder, the Severnaya Dvina has a reinforced bow with ICE 1 notation so it can continue dredging in waters approaching freezing point, and then relocate with icebreaker support.

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.
