Tommy Norton begins operations in Australia

The first dredger to be built by Damen Shipyards Group for Australia, the 60m Tommy Norton, has now started work, improving access for commercial vessels, oil and gas suppliers and commercial fishing fleet that cross the entrance bar to the Gippsland Lakes area.

The maintenance dredging also helps reduce the risk of flooding to local communities.

Capable of dredging to depths of 15m, the dredger has been built with bottom doors to enable self-emptying and can alternate between a bow connection and rainbow expulsion for beach reclamation work.
