Royal IHC has just released this beautiful photo of the cutter suction dredger (CSD) Robert M. White, taken during its first assignment.

The CSD is currently working on a beach nourishment project on Cat Island, off the coast of Gulfport, Mississippi.

Constructed at Halimar Shipyard LLC in Morgan City, Louisiana, for Manson Construction Co., with design and dredge components from IHC America Inc., the dredger was successfully launched on April 24, 2017.

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 said in its announcement.
