Dutch shipbuilder Royal IHC announced today the receipt of a contract for the design, construction and delivery of two unique LNG-powered dredging vessels to DEME Group in Belgium. The 7,950 m3 and 3,000 m3 (expandable to 3500m3) trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) are the first to be provided with a liquefied natural gas (LNG) – fueled main engine which ensures they are complaint with IMO tier III emissions requirements.

No further details are yet available on these vessels. gCaptain has reached out to DEME for further comment.
