Rosmoport’s new TSHD to replace old dredgers Dnestr and Kuban 2

FSUE Rosmorport is set to start developing a technical design of a new 1,000cbm trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) for the Caspian and Azov seas.


This info was revealed earlier this week by Vasily Strugov, Deputy General Director of Rosmorport, at the 6th Hydraulic Engineering and Dredging Congress in Moscow, organized by IAA PortNews.

According to Strugov, the new dredger will replace the dredging vessels Dnestr and Kuban 2, involved in maintenance dredging in the Taganrog and Rostov-on-Don areas.

Investment program for 2025-2029 foresees construction of two newly designed dredgers.

Vasily Strugov also said that the resources obtained as a ‘utilization grant’ for the scrapping of the two dredgers will be used for construction of new hopper dredgers.
