GLDD | Galveston Island

C-Job created the initial design, concept design, and basic design package of a trailing suction hopper dredger, Galveston Island, together with her owner Great Lakes Dredge & Dock Corporation. The TSHD has a capacity of 6,500 cubic yards. The vessel is specifically designed to be easy to build. The vessel is currently under construction at Conrad Shipyard with delivery in early 2023.

After their satisfaction with the first vessel, GLDD has decided to order a second 6,500-cubic-yard-capacity TSHD. The new vessel will be a sister ship to the Galveston Island and is planned for delivery in the first quarter of 2025.
