Royal IHC has just announced that the first custom-built trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) in the Middle East, the 6,000m³ ARZANA successfully completed sea trials last week in the Netherlands.

It took the Dutch shipbuilder only ten months to completely design, construct and test the new vessel.

The keel-laying for the newbuild was on 6 March 2017, at IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk, and the launch ceremony on 20 September.

According to Royal IHC, this state-of-the-art, which is owned by National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) from Abu Dhabi, has been specially designed to operate in high ambient temperatures.

The design is the result of the long-term business partnership between IHC and NMDC,” said NMDC CEO Mr Eng. Yasser Zaghloul. “It is a tailor-made solution that combines shallow draft and a large dredging depth with high manoeuvrability. We are confident that this new vessel will contribute to our aim of positioning NMDC as a leader in our industry.

The shipbuilder is planning to hold the delivery ceremony for TSHD ARZANA in coming weeks.
