Construction of the new multi-purpose 5.450m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) ‘DC Orisant’  has come a long way since the keel-laying in July.

The vessel, being built by Royal IHC for joint venture consisting of Den Herder (Reimerswaal Dredging) and Group de Cloedt, is set to be launched in early 2018.

According to the shipbuilder, the dredger installation has been designed to dredge marine aggregates (sand and gravel) for the construction industry.

The DC Orisant will also be extremely suitable for performing regular dredging projects, such as maintenance dredging and beach nourishment, IHC said. The DP2 installation enables the vessel to perform support activities for the construction of offshore wind farms.

When delivered in mid-2018, the DC Orisant will be the first complete diesel electric aggregate dredger in the market.
