Dutch Dredging Orders Special-Purpose Vessel Peter

Baggerbedrijf de Boer – Dutch Dredging has placed an order at Shipyard Hoekman for a special-purpose plough and tugboat ‘Peter’. 

Last week, the company also ordered a trailing suction hopper dredger ‘Lesse’ that will be built at Royal IHC.

According to Dutch Dredging, both the ‘Lesse’ and the ‘Peter’ are evolutions of vessels ordered previously. The designs were optimized further in collaboration with the entire fleet personnel, giving rise to new concepts.

The multifunctional plough boat measures 22.3 meters by 7.0, with a draught of 2.8 meters. Among other things the boat is equipped with a multibeam, so that the seabed can be charted entirely in three dimensions.

Thanks to the good and long-term relationship with our clients, combined with our own enthusiastic specialists and a modern, efficient fleet, we are looking to the future with confidence,” commented Dutch Dredging Director, Kees van de Graaf. “This is what has enabled us to take this step. We are happy to do it alongside our partners, IHC and Hoekman, whom we know well, and who have also worked well with us in previous building teams.

Dutch Dredging also reported that the ‘Peter’, expected to be taken into commission in May 2018, replaces two older plough boats which will be decommissioned this year. The company’s plough boat fleet will then consist of five boats.
