Are you tendering or have a firm requirement for capital or maintenance dredging? View our trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) for sale.

How TSHDs operate

These vessels range from small for coastal and harbour maintenance work, to large for extensive capital dredging projects.

Suction pipes are lowered to the seabed, and pumps transfer the spoil and water to the vessel’s hold or hopper. Here, water is drained off and the spoil retained until it can be discharged.

TSHDs discharge collected sand and spoil by:

  • Emptying it through the hopper’s underside doors when in a dumping zone.
  • ‘Rainbowing’ it through a snout on the bow discharging, or through a floating pipe, to the shore. Used especially in land reclamation. Once the spoil is ashore, its weight keeps it there while the water runs off back into the sea.
