Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger Amazone in Hamburg
Royal IHC has released a time-lapse video made by IHC service engineers during a customer visit in Germany.
The video shows the IHC built trailing suction hopper dredger, Amazone, dredging in the port of Hamburg.
A trailing suction hopper dredger is a sea-going vessel that can suck up sand from the sea floor and transport it across great distances.
The dredger sucks up sand at the sand extraction site via its suction tubes. The sand ends up in the hold. Once the bin is full, the ship sails to its destination for unloading.
