IHC Launches the First Easydredge 2700

Today Royal IHC (IHC) has successfully launched the first Easydredge® 2700. The vessel comes as the first in a range of competitively priced standard trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHD).

The launch took place at the IHC’s partner shipyard, MTG Dolphin, in Varna, Bulgaria. The vessel will be delivered in summer 2015.

TSHD Challenger will be supplied with a “world-dredging package”, which includes bottom doors, a bow coupling and a dredging depth of 25 m. This makes her suitable for a wide range of tasks, from the maintenance of ports and channels, to land reclamation.

Fer Tummers, Managing Director of IHC’s Dredging Division, says: “The construction of the vessel is going well and is on schedule. We have been encouraged by the extensive interest from the market in our Easydredge® range. Building a TSHD for stock has been a logical step forward for IHC and we are convinced that it will bring added value and benefits to our customers, including extremely short delivery times.
