Royal IHC Hands Over Hopper Dredger DASA I

Royal IHC has completed delivery of the trailing suction hopper dredger DASA I to Dragados Argentinos DASA S.A. of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The contract for this standardized TSHD of Easydredge 2700 series was signed with DASA in late 2016.

It took only few months for IHC to complete the sale/delivery cycle for this dredger.

With the delivery of the vessel from stock, we are proud to support DASA with its entry into the hopper dredging market, and to be delivering the first new-built TSHD to Argentina in decades,” said IHC Area Sales Director Hans Hesen.

The DASA I is equipped with a “world dredging package”, which includes bottom doors, a bow coupling and a dredging depth of 25m.

This makes her suitable for a wide range of tasks, from port and channel maintenance to land reclamation.
