Royal IHC has just released a photo from the keel laying ceremony of the new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) D11 21 De Julio.

The 4.200m³ TSHD – ordered by the Administration Nacional de Puertos (ANP) – is being built in Uruguay and the Netherlands. The October 25th ceremony took place simultaneously in both countries, IHC said in its release.

Royal IHC signed a contract for the design, construction and delivery of the TSHD with ANP in November 2016.

The agreement was signed by Mr Alberto Diaz Acosta, President of the Board of Directors of ANP, Mrs Gladis Liliana Peirano Rivero, Interim General Secretary of ANP and Mr Hans Hesen, IHC Area Sales Director,  in the presence of Mr Victor Rossi, Minister of Transport and Public Works of Uruguay and Mr Andre Mechi, Senior Project Manager IHC Latin America.

The latest cooperation will further strengthen the relationship between IHC and ANP, say the companies. This dates back to the 1970s, with the delivery of TSHD Draga D-7, which remains part of ANP’s fleet.
