TSHD Easydredge Mahaa Jarraafu Hits the Water

The Maldives Transport and Contracting Company’s (MTCC) new trailing suction hopper dredger Mahaa Jarraafu was launched today at Nantong Rainbow Marine Technology Boat Yard in China.

This vessel is the largest in the Easydredge series of standard twin-screw trailing suction hopper dredgers, designed and built by Royal IHC.

The Mahaa Jarraafu has a length overall of 92.95 meters and a hopper capacity of 3.700m³ per load.

With the design dredging depth of 50 meters, the newbuild will revolutionize dredging industry in the Maldives.

The keel of the new dredger was laid on 25th August at a special ceremony in China.

The delivery of the Mahaa Jarraafu is scheduled for April 2017.

 

Hundreds of TSHDs and CSDs like this one will be collected and published in next year’s Dredging Vessel Directory, to be released in the first quarter of 2017.
