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.
