Self-propelled megacutter, HELIOS, arrived in Kinderdijk, the Netherlands today, where she will be completed at the Royal IHC yard for Royal Boskalis Westminster (Boskalis). 

The outfitted hull was built at the Uljanik shipyard in Pula, Croatia and was recently transported to Kinderdijk. The completion of the construction includes the installation of the main dredging equipment, such as the cutter ladder and the spud carrier. 

The new build – with a length of 152 metres, total installed power of 23,700 kW and a pump ashore capacity of 15,600 kW – is expected to be delivered to Boskalis in the course of 2017.
