S. Vandycke, Dredging International, Zwijndrecht, Belgium Abstract The design and constructing of a trailing suction hopper dredger - TSHD - has always been a special event in which all conventional ship design parameters were rearranged. Compared to a commercial vessel, a TSHD was a very costly vessel for its size. One of the most extraordinary design parameters is that the vessel will sail for 50% of the time empty. This is unthinkable for any commercial cargo vessel, but a given fact for a hopper dredge, and this fact influences the complete design of the vessel.

The methods of hydrodynamic dredging rely on the deliberate resuspension of fine sediments from the river or sea bed such that the material is removed from the dredging area using natural transportation processes. The principle transportation medium for this material is the water column itself. The three main processes of Hydrodynamic Dredging are as follows: • • • The injection of large volumes of water, at low pressure, into the settled sediments to create a density current (Water Injection Dredging).
