Royal IHC VIDEO: TSHD ARZANA Sea Trials

The first custom-built trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) in the Middle East, the 6,000m³ ARZANA successfully completed sea trials last month in the Netherlands.

According to Royal IHC, this dredger, built for National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC) from Abu Dhabi, has been specially designed to operate in high ambient temperatures.

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

It is expected that the new TSHD will be delivered by the end of this month.
