The COSCO Guangdong Shipyard in China, a partner yard of equipment supplier Royal IHC, has launched a liquefied natural gas (LNG) dual fuelled trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD).
The Bonny River is a technically smart designed hopper dredger owned by Dredging, Environmental and Marine Engineering NV (DEME); it has a capacity of 15,000 m3 and a maximum dredging depth of 102 meters.
The vessel combines various functions, such as the ability to dredge hard soil with its Heavy Duty suction tube combined with the ability to reach great depths with its XXL tube.
Environmentally friendly aspects such as minimising turbulence with its closed process water circuit, installation of dual-fuel engines and CLEANSHIP & Green Passport notation make Bonny River a versatile TSHD.
In the coming weeks, the ship will be commissioned and put into operation.
