Trailing suction hopper dredgers

Trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) are self-propelled vessels with a hopper. They are mostly used to dredge loose materials such as sand, clay or gravel.

At Dravo S.A. our powerful, modern dredging fleet features several of our own TSHDs.

And, as members of the Van Oord group we can also call upon all the dredgers in our Dutch partner’s fleet whenever necessary.
