Van Oord’s TSHD Lelystad in Sepetiba Bay, Brazil

Van Oord’s trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Lelystad feels right at home in Central and South America.

For years the vessel has been criss-crossing this part of the world to work on port and waterway development and maintenance projects.

In September, Lelystad was deployed on a maintenance project for the port terminal of Ternium in Sepetiba Bay, Brazil.

By safeguarding the accessibility for marine traffic, the project has contributed to worldwide exportation from the largest steel company in Latin America.
