Royal IHC is putting finishing touches on the trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) JUN YANG 1.

With the deck-house now installed, the JUN YANG 1 is one step closer to delivery, set for the end of July 2016.

The vessel, being built for CCCC Guangzhou Dredging Co., Ltd (GDC), is already equipped with two suction tubes, each with a submerged dredge pump, for a highly efficient dredging performance.

Both suction tubes have a dredging depth of up to 40-60 m, and the starboard suction tube can be extended to a dredging depth of 90 m. Two inboard dredge pumps have been installed for efficient shore discharging and rainbowing.

At the time of delivery, it will be the largest vessel of its kind in China, and will enable GDC to carry out capital dredging and land reclamation jobs on the international market in an efficient way.
