Russia's Lotos Shipyard has launched the first example of the Project 93.159 series of self-propelled dredgers ordered by the State Transport Leasing Company.

Once completed, the dredger will have an LOA of 58 metres, a beam of 12.4 metres, a draught of 1.36 metres, and a 550kW diesel engine. Dredging can be performed at depths of two metres to 10 metres.

Four Project 93.159 dredgers will be supplied to the same customer. These will be deployed in the Ob and Dvina Rivers.

The dredgers were designed by Netherlands-based Royal IHC.
