Ten dredgers and five workboats for Egyptian MOD
Royal IHC has secured an order from the Engineering Authority at the Egyptian Ministry of Defence. The contract comprises the construction of ten 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, each delivering 895kW of power, as well as HDPE floating pipelines (ten x 1,500m). In addition, IHC will provide a comprehensive training package for crew and staff.
“The CSDs will be deployed for the maintenance of Egypt’s lakes and waterways,” says IHC’s Area Sales Director Africa, Rogier Kalis. “This includes the removal of excessive sedimentation, deepening of waterways and environmental dredging. We are proud to contribute to the sustainable development of the country’s important marine infrastructure.”
