Royal IHC, a Dutch company specializing in shipbuilding and equipment for maritime construction, is currently building two 895kW container booster stations for stock and rental.

According to the company, the move follows high demand for immediate delivery of high-quality dredging equipment in the market.

“The large demand for standardized cutter suction dredgers proves that immediate delivery of high-quality dredging equipment is highly appreciated in the dredging market,” said Product Director, Kees Jan Verkaik.

“The first booster will be finished by the end of March, with the second due in April.” 

The IHC Booster 895kW is a versatile and robust booster station that is equipped with state-of-the art technology and significantly improves the productivity of your dredger over longer pumping distances, IHC said.
