Royal IHC is putting final touches on the new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Arzana at their shipyard in Kinderdijk, the Netherlands.

The TSHD Arzana, built for the Abu Dhabi based marine contractor National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC), will be the first custom-built trailing suction hopper dredger in the middle east constructed by IHC, said NMDC.

The vessel will have a capacity of 6.000m³ and will form a part of NMDC’s international growth and fleet investment strategy which is aimed at positioning the company as a leader in the industry, Royal IHC said in its announcement.

The launching of this new TSHD is set to take place in September 2017 and the vessel will be delivered in the first half of 2018.

The contract for the dredger was signed in March 2016 and follows successful cooperation between the two companies in the past such as the construction of the 10.919 kW heavy duty cutter suction dredger (CSD) Al Mirfa, built by IHC Merwede (now Royal IHC) for NMDC back in 2000.
