Belgian dredging specialist DEME on Tuesday said its LNG-fueled trailing suction hopper dredger Bonny River has kicked off sea trials in the South China Sea. 

The vessel with a 15,000-cbm capacity is capable of dredging hard soil and is able to work in water depths up to 100 meters, DEME said in a brief statement through its social media channels.

Bonny River, with dual-fuel engines using diesel and LNG as fuel, will carry a ‘Gren Passport’ and ‘Green Design’ classification.

The Bonny River is the sixth ship that DEME has on order, besides the multipurpose ship the Living Stone, the self-propelled jack-up vessel Apollo, the heavy lift crane vessel RAMBIZ 4000 and two additional trailing suction hopper dredgers.

The order for the Bonny River has been placed at Royal IHC, and the ship has been built by Cosco at its shipyard in Guangdong, China.
