IHC, which has vast experience and proven capability to build world class dredging equipment, has been identified as the technology partner through a transparent Expression of Interest process by CSL.

Normally, high-tech dredgers are being imported into the country, but with this initiative World-class, state-of-the-art dredgers can be manufactured at CSL, thus saving valuable foreign exchange,” announced the Government of India’s Press Information Bureau.

Cochin Shipyard Limited (CSL) is building dredgers for Inland Waterways Authority of India (IWAI) as part of the efforts towards “Make in India” campaign.
