TSHD Sommers Arrives in Astrakhan

Recently delivered the 1000 m³ trailing suction hopper dredger Sommers has arrived at the FSUE Rosmorport Astrakhan branch and is ready for its first job.

The Sommers arrived in Astrakhan on June 21st following a five-day voyage from the Krasnoye Sormovo shipyard.
