On 14 August, Royal IHC successfully launched the MAHURY, a 1,840m3 capacity twin-screw trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD), at partner shipyard MTG Dolphin Shipyard in Varna, Bulgaria. The vessel is being built for Baggerbedrijf de Boer - Dutch Dredging, whose Managing Director C.J. van de Graaf Jr, attended the launch.

The new TSHD is Dutch Dredging’s fourth IHC-built vessel, after the ALBATROS, LESSE and

AMAZONE. The MAHURY is an upgraded version of the ALBATROS, which was delivered in 2013, and was well received by the customer. The MAHURY includes two dredging marks in its design that allows the vessel to operate at different distances from the shore, while still adhering to regulations. The first dredging mark is for operating within 15 miles from shore, and the second within 8 miles from shore.

Dutch Dredging made the decision to invest in a new IHC-built vessel because of the company’s positive experiences with the ALBATROS and IHC’s quality standard and on-time delivery performance. This project further strengthens the good relationship between the two companies and MTG Dolphin Shipyard.

“Dutch Dredging required an efficient, versatile dredger, with high levels of productivity and the MAHURY will serve as an excellent addition to its expanding fleet of IHC-built vessels,” says André Kik, Product Director at IHC. “The relationship between our two companies is based on high levels of trust and cooperation, and we are proud to work alongside Dutch Dredging as one team.”

The MAHURY is scheduled for completion on 31 December 2015, ten weeks before the contracted date.
