Easydredge® in short

Across a range of four models, with hopper volumes ranging from 500 to 4,000m3, our Easydredge® product line has deservedly established its reputation as the ‘workhorse’ of the Royal IHC stable. This makes our Easydredge® a smart choice for both new and experienced contractors. Or local authorities searching for an affordable standard.

The slender hull combines increased speed and low fuel consumption with improved seagoing capabilities which may prolong dredging capabilities in swells. With the accommodation and the characteristic wheelhouse situated on the aft ship, the ship’s master has a direct view on ongoing operations. This view is combined with an open and clear presentation of both system and navigational information on two consoles with all controls ergonomically situated and under direct reach of the master. Propelled by two FPP in the aft, one inboard dredgepump located in the pumproom. Single suction tube on starboard supported by a single jetpump. Maximum performance with minised equipment.


The Easydredge® is a flexible vessel that can be tailored to suit your requirements, be delivered quickly and adapted further as business grows.
