VIDEO: Launching of TSHD Minerva in Kinderdijk

deme

The launching ceremony of DEME’s 3,500m³ LNG-powered trailing suction hopper dredger Minerva took place on December 3 at Royal IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk.

The 83.5 meter long LNG-powered dredger is equipped with Wärtsilä dual-fuel engines meaning it can run on both LNG and conventional marine fuels.

It has a ‘Green Passport’ and a ‘Clean Design’ notation, “complying and exceeding with the strictest international emission requirements,” IHC said.

According to the Dutch shipbuilder, the availability of the vessel has also been increased since it meets the requirements for the extended dry-docking system.

Ships under this special program get a maximum dry-dock interval of 7.5 years, instead of 5 years, by replacing certain dry-dockings with in-water surveys.
