Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger - TSHD 3D model
Low poly model of Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger, ready for animation sequence. Based on Blueprint of DAMEN TSHD.
A trailing suction hopper dredger is a ship that has a full sailing capacity used to maintain navigable waterways, deepening the maritime canals that are threatened to become silted, to construct new land elsewhere or to replace sand eroded by storms or wave action on the beaches. This is made possible by large powerful pumps and engines able to suck sand, clay, silt and gravel.
