VAN OORD | VOX AMALIA & VOX ALEXIA
Voor de Nederlandse baggeraar Van Oord heeft C-Job Naval Architects een 17.000 m3 Sleephopperzuiger ontworpen. Van Oord zal 2 van deze schepen laten bouwen in Spanje bij LaNaval Shipyard.
What makes this design special is its multipurpose functionality. The innovative underwater body is made especially for shallow waters. Furthermore it had 2 suction arms, bottom doors and two rainbow nozzles.
Van Oord will build two of these dredger designs in Spain, at LaNaval Shipyard, Bilbao.
