Thursday, April 17, 2008

 Van Oord and IHC Merwede have reached agreement on four split hopper vessels to be built at the Dalian Liaonan Shipyard in Dalian, China. The vessels to be built are part of our current investment programme.
The vessels are 96 m long over all, 18 m wide, have a hopper capacity of 2,850 m³ and they have 3,159 kW of power installed. The propulsion is by two 1100 kW Azimuth thrusters and there is a DP-facility for easy manoeuvring.
The first two vessels will be operational from April 2009 and the other two from June 2009. They will be deployed together with our two new backacters, which are currently being built.
