Royal IHC recently 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.
The TSHD Shanti Sagar 17 was handed over to her owners on 20 November, said Royal IHC in their latest announcement.
