Royal IHC Puts to the Test New Dredger JUN YANG 1

Royal IHC has been busy for the last couple of days performing sea trials for the 21,028m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) JUN YANG 1.

The vessel, being built for CCCC Guangzhou Dredging Co., Ltd (GDC), is scheduled for completion and delivery by the end of July 2016.

This is the 19th vessel built by IHC for GDC over the last 40 years.

TSHD JUN YANG 1 is 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 60m, and the starboard suction tube that can be extended to a dredging depth of 90m.
