Alewijnse Global Director Sales & Marketing Christel Pullens recently visited Supervisor Gert-Jan Bottinga, working with his team on a new dredger.

During the visit, she was given a tour of the yard and the ongoing works. Pullens was pleased with the progress being made on this project, sanding compliments to the Alewijnse team for “doing a great job”.

The TSHD under construction is one of two dredgers that was taken over by Thecla Bodewes Shipyards following the insolvency of Barkmeijer Shipyards.

Alewijnse Marine, the leading specialist in marine electrical and automation technology, is responsible for the design, building, installation and commissioning of the switchboards and consoles on board the dredger, and of the dedicated alarm, monitoring and control systems.

The new customer will use the specialized dredging vessels for the offshore extraction of sand and gravel aggregates.

The dredgers are 105.9 meters long, have a beam of 15.85m and a maximum draught of 6.94m. Each has a single suction pipe and a hopper capacity of 3,000m³, and accommodation for fourteen people.

Works in Harlingen are now in full swing with delivery scheduled for March 2020.
