Dredging – TSHD
Boskalis and Royal IHC have signed the contract for the construction of a large trailing suction hopper dredger.
The new TSHD with a hopper volume of 31,000 m3 will be built at Royal IHC’s yard in Krimpen a/d IJssel (Netherlands).
The cooperation between Boskalis and Royal IHC for the construction of this state-of-the art trailing suction hopper dredger already took concrete form in 2020, when an agreement was reached for the design and engineering of the TSHD.
From then on, full co-creation worked on an optimal and future-proof design of this custom-built trailing suction hopper dredger. For instance, the vessel is prepared to use methanol as fuel. The megahopper is expected to be delivered in mid-2026.
