Royal IHC Hands Over Hopper Dredger JUN YANG 1

The handing over ceremony of Asia’s largest trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) JUN YANG 1 is being held this morning in Guangzhou City, China.

Built by Royal IHC in the Netherlands, the dredger will be handed over to China Communications Construction Company’s Guangzhou Dredging Co., Ltd. (GDC).

The first gig for the vessel will be Colombo Port City project in Sri Lanka, one of the “One Belt, One Road” cooperation projects between China and Sri Lanka.

Beside channel dredging and port building, JUN YANG 1 is capable of building artificial islands because of its great performance in land reclamation projects.

TSHD JUN YANG 1 is equipped with two suction tubes, each with a submerged dredging pump, for a highly efficient performance (up to 21,028 cubic meters per hour).

Both suction tubes have a dredging depth of up to 60 meters, and the starboard suction tube that can be extended to a dredging depth of 90 meters.

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