Damen Secures New TSHD Contract

Damen Shipyards Group has signed a contract with LLC Onego Shipyard to build a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) 2000.

The vessel will be built by order of FSUE Rosmorport in Petrozavodsk (the Russian Federation) and will be the sixth dredger built under the design of the Dutch company Damen.

Construction of this new TSHD 2000 will involve Damen Technical Cooperation (DTC); the service that company provides to facilitate shipbuilding operations at a local yard of the end-client’s choice.

“In this particular case, we will be providing the design and materials package to Onego Shipyard,” states Damen Sales Manager, Marc Tijssen. “And, because transfer of knowledge and technology is a key aspect of the DTC concept, we will also be ready to deliver any assistance during the build process.”

Strong relationships

After delivery in 2019, the new vessel will be used for maintenance operations in the northern region of Russia.

“Notably, the new vessel will be the sixth Damen dredger in Rosmorport’s fleet. The other vessels include one CSD 650, three TSHD 1000 vessels (built at Krasnoe Sormovo under Damen license) and the TSHD 2000 Severnaya Dvina,” Damen said.

Rosmorport also operates a number of Damen workboats.
