COSCO Guangdong launches eco-friendly TSHD

The environmentally-friendly trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Bonny River has been launched at Royal IHC’s partner yard COSCO Guangdong Shipyard in China.

Built for Belgian-based DEME Group, the TSHD has a capacity of 15,000 cubic metres and a maximum dredging depth of 102 metres.

Bonny River can dredge hard soil with its heavy-duty suction tube and can also reach great depths with its XXL tube.

Minimising turbulence with its closed process water circuit, Bonny River features dual-fuel engines and Cleanship and Green Passport notation.

She will be commissioned in coming weeks and put into operation.
