PHOTO: Construction of Adani’s Second IHC Beagle Dredger

Royal IHC has just released a photo of the trailing suction hopper dredger SHANTI SAGAR 17, being built at the company’s Krimpen aan den IJssel shipyard.

The vessel is first of two IHC Beagle 8,000m³ TSHDs ordered by Adani Group of India.

Earlier this month, at the same shipyard, IHC held a keel laying ceremony for the second 8,000m³ TSHD SHANTI SAGAR 18.

According to the shipbuilder, despite being standardized, these IHC Beagle dredgers will be equipped with a bespoke set of options. Due to the modular design of the series, the vessels can be adapted – either during construction or at a later stage – to suit specific needs.

For example, one of the vessels will work with challenging soils, and so will be equipped with a heavier draghead and additional propulsion power. Two 8-cylinder Wartsila 32 main engines will be onboard the first vessel, and two 7-cylinder Wartsila 32 main engines on the second one.

Both vessels will be delivered to the customer by the end of 2017.
