TSHD Mahaa Jarraafu on Its Way to Maldives

The new Easydredge 3700 trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Mahaa Jarraafu is set to arrive in the Maldives by the end of this month, the Corporate Maldives reports.

The $36 million dredger, built by Royal IHC for the Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC), was launched in January 2017 at the RMC Shipyard in Qidong, China.

According to the MTCC’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ibrahim Ziyath, the dredger is undergoing final evaluations and that he expects the dredger to arrive in the Maldives sometime within this month, as soon as the consultants give the go-ahead.

The dredger will be used for land reclamation, infrastructure and beach nourishment projects on several islands and resorts in Asia.

TSHD Mahaa Jarraafu is equipped with the specially designed Easydredge dredging equipment, including the IHC dredge pump and a slender hull for increased speed and low fuel consumption.

In addition, the vessel has a ‘world dredging’ equipment package, which includes an adjustable overflow, bottom doors, jet water system and a shore pumping installation. The ship is also equipped with an extended suction pipe and an underwater pump that enables the vessel to dredge to a depth of 50 meters.
