Van Oord has ordered 3 trailing succer hopper dredgers to expand their fleet, the vessels will be built at Keppel in Singapore. The vessels have been developed in close cooperation between Van Oord and DEKC. The engineering team paid special attention to the vessels’ energy efficiency. Both hoppers qualify as Tier III vessels (IMO emission standards) and will be fitted with Dual Fuel engines. The design includes several features that will reduce fuel consumption, and consequently carbon emissions, by a considerable margin. The vessels are being equipped with innovative and sustainable systems and will obtain a Green Passport and Clean Ship Notation.
Further engineering support has been given to the yard during production of the vessels.
