Focus on Marine Projects
This week, Baird Maritime once again takes a closer look at marine projects vessels serving a number of roles. Although dredgers once again comprise the majority of featured vessels, also included is a large Chinese-built heavy-lift ship operating under charter with a European customer.
Dredging and Land Reclamation • Maritime Infrastructure Development • Installation and Decommissioning • Maritime Surveying • Port Development • Offshore Wind Farm Development
The featured dredgers are also of a range of types, from one of the largest cutter suction dredgers built and operated in the United States to the first in a new series of LNG-powered hopper dredgers recently delivered to a Dutch contractor.
