Dutch shipbuilder and equipment supplier Royal IHC said it has received an approval in principle (AIP) from classification society Bureau Veritas for the design of a hydrogen-fueled trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) engineered to reduce emissions from coastal protection projects.
The new dredge design, referred to as the ‘LEAF’ (low energy adaptive fuel) hopper, is the result of a partnership between Royal IHC and the Dutch Rijkswaterstaat (Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management), which aims to significantly reduce carbon emissions from its dredging work from 2024 and become carbon neutral by 2030.
