Royal IHC will take part in Europort 2015, the maritime exhibition set for 3-6 November at Ahoy Rotterdam, with a focus on all areas of the shipbuilding industry.
“Europort has become one of the world’s leading meeting places for professionals and pioneers in our markets,” said IHC’s Strategy & Communications Director Kitty de Hey.
“As a large supplier of innovative and efficient equipment, vessels and services for the offshore, dredging and wet mining sectors, the exhibition gives us the ultimate opportunity to meet customers, prospective clients, suppliers and other important decision makers right on our doorstep.”
IHC will feature an interactive wall that will enthuse visitors with entertaining and informative trivia relating to IHC’s product portfolio.
They will also be able to walk on and under the decks of virtual offshore and dredging vessels by means of VR (virtual reality) glasses to gain an impression of IHC’s advanced technology and design.
In addition, a number of impressive scale models, product samples and a dredging simulator will highlight the latest innovations available from Royal IHC for its specialist markets.
IHC’s dredging equipment will be represented by the latest development in pump technology, the Curve® technology, which is now available for all of the company’s dredge pumps. A colored pump impeller model will show how Curve® technology works for three different IHC pump executions.
IHC will also showcase one of its advanced dredger simulators, which is completely compatible with the TID’s (Training Institute for Dredging) expertise in providing training courses.
Visitors will be able to experience the dredging and dumping processes of a backhoe dredger in a realistic environment with the aid of the actual operating controls.
