This tool enables you to determine if a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) or a cutter suction dredger (CSD) is the most suitable vessel for your project. By filling in basic project characteristics, production details and operational time, the required production in m3 per hour will be calculated. In addition, a recommendation will be given for a CSD and/or TSHD with the optimal discharge diameter, or hopper capacity, for your operations.
