Keppel and Jan De Nul Sign Contracts for Three New Dredgers

Keppel Singmarine Pte Ltd (Keppel Singmarine) has secured contracts from Jan De Nul Group to build three trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs).

The contracts for the construction of three TSHDs are worth around $73.7 million in total.

To be built to Jan De Nul’s design, the dredgers will be able to dredge to a maximum depth of 27.6m, and have a hopper capacity of 3,500 m³.

The two dredgers will be built to the requirements of classification society, Bureau Veritas, in Keppel Nantong Shipyard, a subsidiary of Keppel O&M.

Mr Abu Bakar, Managing Director of Keppel Singmarine, said, “Across the group, we have undertaken a number of newbuild dredger projects as well as repairs for customers such as Jan De Nul. We are always on the lookout to add value to our customers and markets, and this project is a natural extension of Keppel Singmarine’s strong track record and expertise in specialized vessels.”

The first two dredgers are expected to be completed in the second half of 2018 while construction of the third dredger will require a notice within six months from JDN to exercise the option for the dredger.
