The Reimerswaal was developed with one key characteristic in mind: flexibility.
As a result, the Reimerswaal can be used for ship-to-shore pumping, rainbowing, discharging (shoreface nourishment), dry discharging, and rock fill depositing. The innovative engineering plan has resulted in a ship that is suited both for the dredging and the offshore industry.

The Reimerswaal is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, including an operating system with a programmable logic controller at the heart of it that can be operated fully from touch screens at various locations on board.

The multi-command chair on the ship’s bridge puts no less than 13 screens at the duty officer's fingertips, giving the duty officer full control and a comprehensive overview of the entire dredging and navigation process.

Dynamic Positioning (DP) also comes as standard, enabling high-precision positioning of the ship.

The stud poles mounted on the ship’s stern and bow allow the duty officer to moor the ship from the control position, even when mooring facilities on shore are lacking. Given that these spud poles can be extended 18 metres below the ship’s keel, no crew will be needed to moor the ship or set off, as the duty officer can do it all without assistance.

With its 12 buckets on a vertical bucket wheel, the ship’s dry discharge system can scoop a layer of material from the hold in both directions at a rate of 2,500m3 per hour.

The bucket wheel system subsequently dumps the material onto the shore conveyor using an ingenious system of conveyors. The shore conveyor, which can swivel 300° from port to starboard, has a discharge distance of 48 metres. The elevation of the conveyor can be adjusted and the conveyor is equipped with a control slide at the discharge end.
