IHC Parts & Services, part of the IHC Merwede group, now offers dredging operators and utility and infrastructure engineering companies all over the world the opportunity to rent its improved TT Pump Dredging Unit. The TT Pump Dredging Unit was specifically developed for use in small-scale dredging projects, including maintenance activities, as well as environmental projects, loading and unloading hopper barges and mining activities.
The TT Pump Dredging Unit can be used on a crane, with an A-frame or combined with an excavator connector and includes, in addition to the TT Pump, an advanced multi-purpose cutter unit, a diesel engine, a water pump and a floating pipeline. The TT Pump Dredging Unit is provided as a complete package, allowing the user to start work immediately. The unit has already been used successfully in small-scale dredging operations and in various civil engineering projects.
The main advantage of renting the comprehensive TT Pump Dredging Unit is that it does not require any large capital investment and therefore spreads the financial risk for customers. Another advantage is that there is no need to pay maintenance or repair costs. These advantages are important for many international companies at a time when every euro counts.
The compact TT Pump Dredging Unit is available as a complete rental package and in four different configurations. Customers are offered the most suitable configuration for the scale of their dredging projects. The TT Pump has undergone a technical overhaul, and is now more durable, maintenance-friendly and efficient in terms of mobility and operational use.
The introduction of the TT Pump Dredging Unit to the rental market means that the product range provided by IHC Parts & Services, a full-service provider, is even better tailored to meet market demand. As well as renting the TT Pump Dredging Unit, customers also still have the opportunity to buy the total package or spare parts.
