The vessel, which was launched on 14 January at IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, is the second Royal IHC-built TSHD capable of operating on LNG.

The first one, the 3.500m³ TSHD Minerva, was launched on December 3rd 2016 at Royal IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk.

These dual fuel (diesel and LNG) dredgers have a ‘Green Passport’ and a ‘Clean Design’ notation, complying and exceeding with the strictest international emission requirements.
