The first photo's of our new Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger 'Lesse'

The ‘Lesse’ is the 9th hopper in the fleet of Dredging company de Boer / Dutch Dredging and is currently on her way to her first dredging job in French Guiana, where she will arrive around the 2nd of September.

The design of the “Lesse” is based on the earlier IHC-built Trailing Suction Hopper Dredgers “Albatros” and “Mahury”. The vessel is equipped with the latest innovation in the field of overflow – the IHC Plumigator®, which will significantly reduce the sludge cloud around the ship.

The “Lesse” is characterized by a low draft and has a hopper capacity of 2300m3.
