Lotos shipyard lays down two self-propelled dredgers
The ships will be built under the leasing programme of State Transport Leasing Company
Lotos shipyard (Southern Center of Shipbuilding and Ship Repair of the United Shipbuilding Corporation) has laid down two lead ships in a series of self-propelled bucket-wheel dredgers (with a bucket wheel type agitator and with a cutting head), the company told IAA PortNews.
The works are foreseen by the contract signed by Lotos shipyard and State Transport Leasing Company for construction of four self-propelled bucket-wheel dredgers of Project 93.159 for Ob-Irtysh and North-Dvina Basins of IWW.
The dredgers will be built in cooperation with Royal IHC (the Netherlands).
Upon completion of the keel-laying ceremony, Lotos is holding a meeting dedicated to dredging on the Volga-Caspian Canal and prospects for construction of dredging equipment in the Astrakhan Region.
Issues related to dredging will be discussed at the International Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” annually held by IAA PortNews in partnership with FSUE Rosmorport in February.
