Royal IHC has just announced that the new trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) Shanti Sagar 17 successfully completed sea trials.
The new TSHD – built for Adani Group- was lunched at IHC’s shipyard in Krimpen aan den IJssel, the Netherlands, on 31 March 2017.
This is the first of two Beagle 8 TSHDs for Adani – the second (Shanti Sagar 18) was launched in July 2017.
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.
