VIDEO: Royal IHC Launches Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger DC Orisant

The launching ceremony of new multi-purpose 5.450m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) DC Orisant took place a couple minutes ago at the Royal IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, the Netherlands.

The vessel was built for joint venture consisting of Den Herder (Reimerswaal Dredging) and Group de Cloedt.

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

Royal IHC added that the TSHD will also be extremely suitable for performing regular dredging projects, such as maintenance dredging and beach nourishment.

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