Damen’s largest TSHD built in Indonesia
Barito Equator, a Damen TSHD 2500, was delivered in May 2015. The 2,500 m3 capacity vessel is not only the first of its kind to be built in Indonesia, but is also the largest standard hopper dredger that Damen has built. Indonesian shipyard Steadfast Marine built the Barito Equator with assistance from Damen Technical Cooperation.
The local yard has helped advance Indonesia’s maritime ambitions through transfer of technology during the complex build with numerous companies within the Damen Shipyards Group. Gysbert Boersma, Damen Sales Manager Asia-Pacific: “It is a huge accomplishment that wouldn’t be possible without strong local partnerships.”
