General – Dredging
Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation, the largest provider of dredging services in the United States, has contracted Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam to design a large Cutter Suction Dredge (CSD) for potential expansion to their current fleet of dredges.
The Dutch maritime design and engineering firm has been commissioned to provide a concept and basic design for the vessel, including a design package for the dredging equipment.
“This contract marks a milestone for our company,” says Floris Toetenel, Commercial Director at Vuyk Engineering Rotterdam. “For some time now, we have been looking into the possibility of establishing a foothold with our services in the United States. The first step was taken when we became an independent engineering company in 2021. This gave us the opportunity to seek out new business opportunities.”
