Custom-built TSHD Arzana completes sea trials

The 6,000-cubic-metre trailing suction hopper dredger Arzana has completed sea trials in the Netherlands.

Being built at Royal IHC’s shipyard at Kinderdijk for the Abu Dhabi-based National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC), the TSHD is a tailor-made solution that combines a shallow draught and a large dredging depth with high manoeuvrability while operating in high temperatures.

Launched on September 20, Arzana is scheduled for delivery in early 2018.
