Royal IHC has reached agreements with several key customers in Africa and Asia to supply IHC Beaver® cutter suction dredgers (CSDs) and an IHC Easydredge® trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) with an approximate total value of € 100 million. Both vessel types are products within IHC’s highly successful standardised range of dredging vessels.
The flexible IHC Easydredge® concept, available in four types and with hopper capacities ranging from 500 to 4,000m3, is ideal for all common maintenance and land reclamation projects.
The IHC Beaver® is extremely productive at dredging depths ranging from two to more than 18 metres. Since 1963, over 900 IHC Beavers® have been supplied and successfully deployed worldwide. In recent times, more companies have chosen to invest in IHC’s CSDs to efficiently maintain and develop ports, lakes and inland waterways.
“Our range of IHC Beaver® and IHC Easydredge® vessels have proven to be highly successful worldwide,” says IHC’s Executive Commercial Director Dredging Arne de Kock. “We are proud of the trust and confidence that our numerous customers continue to have in IHC’s ability to deliver innovative solutions and value-added products. With our collaborative approach and commitment to in-depth co-creation with our customers, we endeavour to develop solutions for the long-term satisfaction of all stakeholders across the challenging environments in which we operate.”
