IHC Beaver® 5014 C
These dredgers are equipped with a single high-pressure submerged dredge pump, mounted on the ladder. This high efficiency dredge pump is directly driven by the diesel engine, via the IHC Pivoting Gearbox.
The prime mover for the dredge pump is a modern computer-controlled diesel engine with low fuel consumption, and low NOx and soot emissions.
This combination results in the lowest possible costs per cubic meter of dredged material, for both cutter and wheel dredgers. The type designation of the NG IHC Beaver® series relates to the diameter of the delivery pipeline, the dredging depth and the cutting tool.
