HAM 318 HIts Water in Big Way

October 8, 2001

A mammoth trailing suction hopper dredger, built by IHC Holland NV in cooperation with Van de Giessen - du Noord, was launched earlier this year to rave reviews, and was anticipated to be delivered and working this month. The vessel, which joins the company's 16 other trailing suction hopper dredgers, measures 557.7 x 105 ft. (170 x 32 m) and boasts an installed power of 28,500 kW, with a hopper capacity of 23,000 cu. m. and a maximum dredging depth of 364 ft. (111 m) — all numbers which easily rank it as the king of the HAM fleet and make it more powerful and capable by a factor of two. Rotterdam-based HAM is one of the world's leading dredging companies, but is active in many marine related fields including: construction and maintenance of harbor infrastructure and waterways; land reclamation; coastal and embankment protection; offshore services; environmental activities; rock drilling and blasting; and irrigation work.
