PHOTO: Cuban Easydredge Vessel Takes Shape

Royal IHC is making good progress on the construction of the Easydredge 3,700m³ that is being built for Tecnoimport and Empresa Constructora de Obras Maritimas from Havana, Cuba.

The company, just a few minutes ago, announced that since the keel laying ceremony (12 March) in Kinderdijk, 19 blocks have been added to the slipway.

This 3,700m³ trailing suction hopper dredger is the largest in the series of standardized Easydredge® twin-screw TSHDs, and it will be deployed for maintenance works and beach nourishment projects.

In addition to the standard features, the vessel will be upgraded with options such as: larger crew accommodation and increased autonomy; a booster pump, which enhances shore-pumping capacities to more than 4km; and a dynamic positioning system that will help to navigate through narrow passages to protect the coral reefs around the Cuban coast.

Due for delivery in early 2018, the new vessel will work alongside the 1981 IHC-built split hopper vessel QUALITY STAR.
