Baggerbedrijf De Boer BV – Dutch Dredging recently revealed a photo of the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Mahury operating in the Wadden Sea.
The Mahury is performing maintenance dredging of the Wadden Sea channels and ports under the Rijkswaterstaat Projects and Maintenance Program (PPO).
The multi-year contract for maintenance dredging and monitoring of shipping channels and ports in the Northern- and Central Netherlands was won by joint venture of Van der Kamp and Baggerbedrijf De Boer back in 2021.
In the coming years (2021-2024), the two companies will also carry out multibeam soundings and sediment surveys of the Wadden Sea.
Over the last dredging season, numerous vessels took part in this project. Some of them include hopper dredgers Adelaar, Saramacca and Van der Kamp’s TSHD Pieter Hubert, as well as bed leveller Peter and the grab dredger Rival.
