Keppel Offshore & Marine (Keppel O&M) has delivered its fifth Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger (TSHD), Ortelius, a 6,000 m3 TSHD, to Jan De Nul Group with a perfect safety record.

The delivery follows three 3,500 m3 TSHDs and one 6,000 m3 TSHD in 2019.

All five TSHDs are Ultra-Low Emission vessels (ULEv) and the world's first European Union (EU) Stage V dredgers.

This is in line with Keppel’s Vision 2030, which puts sustainability at the heart of its strategy, says Keppel O&M in a statement released on Dec 16.

"The delivery of a fifth dredger is testament to Keppel O&M’s newbuild capabilities and technological expertise. Our partnership with Jan De Nul Group has grown from strength to strength, and we are pleased to have delivered all five Ultra-Low Emission dredgers to Jan De Nul Group safely and efficiently, harnessing our holistic construction methodology,” says Tan Leong Peng, managing director (new builds) at Keppel O&M.

"Ortelius, like all our new dredgers, allows dredging at the lowest levels of emissions to date. The Jan De Nul Group and Keppel teams worked closely to overcome the challenges caused by COVID-19 and expedite the delivery of Ortelius. We are proud to partner with industry leader Keppel, who has through their engineering expertise and excellent service, provided assurance in the safe delivery of high-quality vessels,” adds Robby De Backer, director of newbuilding department of Jan De Nul Group.

Shares in Keppel closed 7 cents higher or 1.3% up at $5.36 on Dec 16.
