TSHD Scelveringhe

Solid and Reliable

"The Scelveringhe"

The trailing suction hopper dredger Scelveringhe was built in 2004 and has a hopper capacity of 4000 Mᶟ.

By using spud poles, mooring actions are minimised. Before and during unloading, the load is pumped dry using a vacuum installation. The unloading installation is developed and designed by years of experience and is capable unloading the vessel in an average of 2.5 hours. The vessel is equipped with a special designed hydraulic screening plant so we can produce products as requested by our customers.

The key to success of the company is based on the highly skilled crew

and the high standard of maintenance which improves the reliability of our fleet. They form the strength of the company.
