International Dredging Review
MENUMENU

In December Royal IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdik The Netherlands held a launch ceremony for DEME’s 3500 cubic meter (4578 cubic yards) LNG-powered trailing suction hopper dredge Minerva. The official name giving and christening ceremony will take place in the spring of 2017 in Zeebrugge Belgium.

On November 10 2016 both DEME and IHC won a DOC Innovation Award for the new concept.

For more on the details on the design see the article “DEME Group Building the World’s First LNG-Powered Dredges” in the September/October 2016 issue.
