Dredging data: 2019 newbuilds by shipyard location

For a new edition of our dredging data insights, DPC has taken IHS Markit’s forecast of World Shipbuilding Statistics, to get a better insight into where dredgers are currently being built that will be delivered over the course of 2019.

Some of these vessels have already been launched and are in operation, such as DEME’s cutter suction dredger Spartacus and Jan de Nul’s trailing suction hopper dredger Afonso De Albuquerque. Cutter suction dredgers and trailing suction hopper dredgers are the two main types that are on order.

The visualisation clearly shows that the majority of vessel are being built at Asian shipyards, with Bangladesh and China leading the table in terms of numbers.
