The new dredger was towed to the Port of Rotterdam, where it was loaded aboard a heavy lift vessel that set sail for Indonesia on 9 February.

The new CSD, named Jhoni 58 is part of a complete dredging package, which includes ship transportation, training of the crew on location as well as dredge spares to facilitate maintenance duties.

The distinctive CSD600, which is being shipped as deck cargo at present, is a brand-new type of dismountable dredger, recently added to the Damen standard range of dredgers. The dredger has a cutter power of 250kW and a maximum dredging depth of -16m.
