Dredging and construction firm Ballast Nedam said it was considering ordering a jumbo dredging ship as economic growth in Southeast Asia recovered, "but we haven't approached any shipyards yet," said spokeswoman Nel de Geus. Builder HBG repeated a statement made at its first half results presentation on Sept. 2.

He added HBG would make it public if a contract were signed.
