Keppel Singmarine, Keppel Offshore & Marine’s (Keppel O&M) wholly-owned subsidiary, has secured contracts from Van Oord to build two high-specification Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers (TSHDs).

The two dredgers are expected to be completed in 4Q 2020 and 2Q 2021 respectively. As part of the contracts, Van Oord has an option to order a third dredger to be exercised within one year.

When completed, the two TSHDs will each have a hopper capacity of 10,500 cubic meters. Built to the requirements of the classification society, Bureau Veritas, the two dredgers will be equipped with dual-fuel systems capable of running on LNG.

“Keppel is currently constructing five other dredgers, and we are able to build on our experience and capabilities to meet Van Oord’s needs,” Abu Bakar, Managing Director at Gas & Specialised Vessels, Keppel O&M, said.

 “Last month we already launched our first LNG powered crane vessel. The TSHDs will be the first LNG hopper dredgers in our fleet,” Jaap de Jong, Staff Director, Ship Management Department at Van Oord, said.
