Dutch company Royal IHC has delivered the newbuild trailing suction hopper dredger River Thames to Belgium’s DEME.
The dredger, designed and built by IHC, is based on the TSHD LESSE, delivered to Baggerbedrijf de Boer by IHC in 2019.
The vessel is designed to maintain sea and inland waterways, as well as perform land reclamation.
“The compact design of the TSHD is characterized by a small draught and can be deployed for projects in shallow water worldwide,” Royal IHC said.
The River Thames was built for DEME at PaxOcean Graha, Batam, Indonesia, and will now get ready for its first project.
