Successful naming and launch ceremony for MIONDO by IHC Merwede

IHC Merwede has successfully named and launched the stationary cutter suction dredger, MIONDO, in a ceremony on 16 May 2012 at its shipyard in Sliedrecht, The Netherlands. The company is building the innovative vessel for Marina & Ports Services Ltd, which is based in England.

The ceremony was performed by Mrs E. Currie, the wife of Mr D. Currie, Managing Director of Marina & Ports Services Ltd.

The contract for the design, construction and delivery of the vessel was signed between Marina & Ports Services Ltd and IHC Beaver Dredgers in March 2011. The keel was laid on 6 October

The MIONDO is a custom-built IHC Beaver® with a capacity of 4,836kW and it is capable of dredging a wide range of materials. The vessel is equipped with two Cutter Special® dredge pumps, which are specially designed with a large sphere passage for cutter suction dredging operations. The anchor boom allows it to operate in remote areas with limited support equipment.

With vast experience accumulated over decades, IHC Merwede is the market leader for the design and manufacture of efficient and integrated dredging vessels and equipment....
