A new multipurpose 5,450m3 trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) was officially named and launched during a ceremony on January 11 at Royal IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, The Netherlands.

This is due to its integrated design and the high standard of dredging equipment on board,” said Bert den Herder, owner of Reimerswaal Dredging.
