Alewijnse completes another high-quality TSHD project

Alewijnse team recently completed another successful project for Royal IHC, underlining its firm relationship with the Dutch shipbuilder.


The project included design and engineering of the electrical installation aboard the hopper dredger TEUNIS HUIBERTUS.

According to Alewijnse, the project was done in close cooperation of the engineers of the two companies, the owner and all other interested parties.

“We received many positive responses on the delivered quality and cooperation from both Royal IHC and Gebr. van der Lee and the classification society,” said project manager Ben Bonte.

The TEUNIS HUIBERTUS is the latest dredger to be added to the fleet of Gebr. van der Lee, enabling the company to take an important step in expanding and making its dredging equipment more sustainable for the Dutch dredging market.

Belonging to the IHC Beagle® 4 series, this hopper dredger is one of the most energy-efficient and emission-free trailing suction hopper dredgers of its kind due to several technical integrated systems, significantly reducing CO2 emissions.

With a best-in-class fuel efficiency, adequate low greenhouse gas emissions and an exhaust gas treatment to meet the IMO Tier III emission standards, the TEUNIS HUIBERTUS scores well on the environmental cost indicator, a critical success factor for winning tenders.
