Redwise delivers two dredgers to Singapore – one from the east, one from the west. 

The newly built TSHD Barito Equator was delivered by Redwise to Singapore in the first week of May 2015.

Built by the Damen Shipyard at Pontianak, she followed strait on the heels of the THSD Moniflor built 2000 by IHC in The Netherlands for the French government. The Moniflor was Eastbound, with a passage via Las Palmas, Walvis Bay and Mauritius the long way round. The Barito Equator headed Westward, departing   from Pontianak, Indonesia with very fine weather.

Sea trials were performed with a full Redwise crew together with the staff of Damen and main equipment suppliers. This is the fourth dredger delivered by Redwise under her own power within the past 12 months, with the two previous deliveries being IHC built Grab hopper dredger Italeni to Durban and the cutter dredger  Al Bahar to Jeddah. All four vessels had different propulsion packages with high- or medium speed engines, driving a variety of propellers with conventional CPP (s) and Electric driven Azimuth thrusters in the mix.
