Royal IHC has just released this very interesting photo from the christening of bespoke cutter suction dredger (CSD) Robert M. White.

The photo was taken in Mississippi, where the CSD will shortly start on its first project, IHC said.

Constructed at Halimar Shipyard LLC in Morgan City, Louisiana, for Manson Construction Co., the dredger was successfully launched on April 24, 2017.

“The CSD has various features that have not previously been available to the U.S. market, and is the most technology advanced vessels of its kind in the country. It was designed in the Netherlands, but the building of the pontoon and the assembly was done in the USA,” IHC said in its announcement.

Named in honor of Mr. Robert M. “Mitch” White, a long-time Manson employee and one of the leaders in the advancement of safety in the maritime industry, the dredger is a testament to the excellent teamwork between IHC, Halimar and Manson, continuing Manson’s fleet modernization, Manson added.
