Royal IHC has been awarded a contract for the delivery of dredge pumps by Luxembourg-based Jan De Nul Group.

The agreement incorporates two onboard double-walled dredge pumps for the company’s new 18,000m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD), as well as onboard single-walled dredge pumps for two other 6,000m³ TSHDs.

“We are delighted that we have secured another order from Jan De Nul Group,” said Dave Vander Heyde, CEO of Royal IHC. “For the past 20 years, the company has continuously extended its TSHD fleet and it is testament to our partnership that the majority of these vessels are equipped with IHC dredge pumps.”

For the 18,000m³ hopper, the double-walled dredge pumps have been designed to deliver a total installed power of 7,000kWs per pump. This will enable them to discharge 33 bar pressure when operated concurrently, said IHC.

The single-walled dredge pumps for the smaller 6,000m³ hoppers, will deliver an installed power of 4,000kWs and provide a discharge pressure of up to 11 bar.

The two double-walled pumps will also be equipped with IHC’s latest Curve® technology.

According to IHC, the Curve® impeller ensures that the pumps perform with excellent suction properties over the prolonged lifetime of the product.
