A new dredger ordered by UK-based Hanson Aggregates Marine recently arrived in home waters following its delivery voyage from Romania.

Built by Damen Shipyards Galati, the 35-metre Hanson Thames will be used to conduct offshore aggregate extraction in water depths up to 55 metres even in harsh environments. The dredger’s area of operations will encompass the North Sea and the English Channel.

Like other dredgers in the Hanson fleet, Hanson Thames is designed for maximum efficiency to deliver aggregate from the many mineral reserves direct to customers in the UK and near continent.
