Cryonorm BV said in their latest release that the LNG fuel tank for Van der Kamp’s new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Ecodelta is on the move and heading for Barkmeijer Shipyard in Stroobos, the Netherlands.

Cryonorm, the Alphen aan den Rijn based company, develops, designs and manufactures cryogenic vaporizers, small scale systems and plants for Air Gases and LNG.

The 325m³ LNG storage tank is completed with the tank connection space holding both vaporizers and all required valves and safeties.

With a total weight of 88t, diameter of 7.4m and overall length of nearly 12m this transport asks for quite some special arrangements,” the company said.

The newbuild, scheduled for delivery in late 2018, will be one of few LNG-powered dredgers in operation around the globe.

Despite being in the early stage of construction, the Zwolle-based dredging company has already won the first contract for the newbuild.

According to Van der Kamp, under the agreement signed last year, the TSHD will be responsible for keeping Rotterdam’s port basins at the correct depth until 2023.
