Construction of the Custom-Built TSHD ARZANA (VIDEO)

National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) has just released a 60-second video of the construction process of the 6,000m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) ARZANA.

The newbuild was launched two days ago, September 20, at Royal IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk, The Netherlands.

The TSHD Arzana is the first custom-built trailing suction hopper dredger in the middle east.

This tailor-made solution combines shallow draft and a large dredging depth with high manoeuvrability. The ARZANA has also been specifically designed for operating in high temperatures.

Delivery of the vessel has been scheduled for early 2018.
