IHC Merwede was awarded the newbuilding contract of a Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger vessel of 5500m³ for a South-African owner.
The basic design was executed by IHC VUYK Engineering Rotterdam.
A multi-disciplinary team of MULTI.engineering has prepared the detail design of both the steel hull construction as well as of the complete piping and mechanical design.
The shipyard has succeeded in meeting the very ambitious time schedule with the help of the on very short notice assembled design team of Multi.
The ships’ hull was launched within eight months after the start of the project.
