Dredgers for harsh environments

Getting reliable, cost-effective equipment, training and support to Santo Antonio Civil Consortium. 

GETTING TWO DREDGERS THERE…
READY TO ASSEMBLE

Reliable dredging equipment was needed to help widen and deepen the Madeira River. Royal IHC sent two standard IHC Beaver® cutter suction dredgers, the JATUARANA I and II, to Brazil.

The job at hand

Explaining the challenge

AUTONOMOUS OPERATION

Additional options such as spud carrier and anchor booms enable these non-self-propelled dredgers to move forward without the need for support vessels.

HIGH PRODUCTIVITY

A powerful dredger was needed to safely dredge on a stream current with waves. Time pressure in the dredging project played an equally important role. Customized IHC Beaver® dredgers were the solution.

INCREASING DREDGING KNOWLEDGE

After a three month on-the-job operator training by Royal IHC the operators had all the knowledge they needed to operate the vessels safely and efficiently. Moreover, subjects related to dredging processes, operational and maintenance aspects were also covered to ensure maximum efficiency and uptime of the vessels.

LOW MAINTENANCE

Crews should spend their valuable time on their regular work, rather than on repairing the tools they use. Royal IHC provided durable equipment that delivers high production capacities while keeping the need for maintenance during operation low. Furthermore spare parts are quickly available when needed. 

MONITORING THE ENVIRONMENT

To ensure the wellbeing of local wildlife and to comply with the terms with regards to the environmental impact, underwater sensors analyze the river’s characteristics in real-time. These figures can be compared to measurements made before construction began.

VERSATILE EQUIpMENT

Dismountable equipment, such as a dredging wheel and exchangeable cutterheads enable IHC Beaver® dredgers to deal with different soil types and obstacles such as trees and roots.
