Hopper dredgers

Trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) are designed to work in extreme conditions, at challenging depths and to handle various types of soil, such as sand, gravel and silt. IHC Easydredge® and IHC Beagle® are product lines of standardised TSHDs that benefit from IHC’s vast experience and extensive track record. The IHC Easydredge® ranges in hopper volume from 500 to 4,000m³. The IHC Beagle® ranges in hopper volume from 4,000 to 12,000m³. Find out more about our TSHDs.

Cutter suction dredgers

IHC designs and builds a variety of standardised and custom-built cutter suction dredgers (CSDs). These are capable of dredging compacted soil types and materials, such as clay and rock. High accuracy and a continuous rate of production ensure that IHC’s cutter suction dredgers are ideal for many dredging jobs, such as land reclamation and the construction of new harbour basins and canals. Find the best IHC cutter suction dredger for your dredging project.

Other dredgers

IHC can design and build a wide range of auxiliary vessels, which are required to transport dredged material to the final placement site, assist the dredger or increase its overall production rate.
