More Facts About Royal IHC Beagle Series

The launching ceremony of Adani’s 8,000m³ IHC Beagle trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Shanti Sagar 18 took place last week at Royal IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, the Netherlands.

Today, we are bringing you more details about this impressive vessel.

The TSHD will be mainly utilized for maintenance dredging, IHC said in its announcement. The previous TSHD launched for Adani, Shanti Sagar 17, will be deployed for capital dredging in challenging soils. Therefore, it was equipped with a heavier draghead.

Due to the modular design of the Beagle 8 series, the vessels can be adapted for specific dredging tasks.

Beagle series

The Beagle 8 dredger has a total length of 104.5 meters and a width of 24.2 meters. The vessel is designed to have a loaded speed of 13.7 knots. In addition, it has two suction pipes with a diameter of 800mm and can reach a dredging depth of 26 meters.

Each Beagle 8 is equipped with IHC’s Trailspeed Controller (TSC) and Eco Pump Controller (EPC).

Developed in-house, the TSC ensures a constant speed while dredging, which leads to higher average production results and greater levels of consistency. The EPC reduces excessive cavitation as well as wear and tear, and fuel consumption.
