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.

The newbuild comes as the lead vessel in a series of three 1000 m³ TSHDs that are being built for Rosmorport.

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

The new vessel will stay in the waters of the Volga-Caspian sea shipping channel (VKMSK), performing dredging operations along the waterway until the completion of the summer navigation season.
