The trailing suction hopper dredge Margaret Ann, owned by Cloedt Group of Belgium, took delivery of Damen parts, including a suction tube position indication with both vertical and horizontal angle measurement, a load and draught indicator, showing the vessels loading graph, and a data logger that combined the various signals plus time stamp and the location data.

The equipment was delivered and installed in six weeks, after which the 835-cubic-meter hopper dredge started a job in Germany.
