MENUMENU

Royal IHC has received several new contracts for dredging equipment. The Engineering Authority at the Egyptian Ministry of Defense (MOD) issued a contract for the construction of 10 IHC Beaver® Cutter Suction Dredgers (CSDs) and five Delta Multi Craft (DMC) 1050 work boats. The order also includes three floating IHC Multi-Booster stations with 895kW of power, and HDPE floating pipelines (32.8 feet x 4,921 feet). In addition, IHC will provide a comprehensive training package for crew and staff.

The Jan De Nul Group awarded a contract to IHC for the delivery of two onboard double-walled dredge pumps. The pumps will be used in Jan De Nul’s new 18,000-cubic-yard (23,540-cubic-yard) trailing suction hopper dredge. IHC will also deliver onboard single-walled dredge pumps for two other 6,000-cubic-meter (7,850-cubic-yard) trailing suction hopper dredges. The double-walled dredge pumps deliver a total installed power of 7,000kWs per pump and discharge 33 bar pressure when operated concurrently. The single-walled dredge pumps will deliver an installed power of 4,000kWs and provide a discharge pressure of up to 11 bar.
