Royal IHC has secured an order from the Engineering Authority at the Egyptian Ministry of Defense (MOD) which includes the construction of 10 IHC Beaver® cutter suction dredgers (CSDs) and five Delta Multi Craft (DMC) 1050 work boats.

Commenting this, IHC’s Area Sales Director Africa, Rogier Kalis, said: “The CSDs will be deployed for the maintenance of Egypt’s lakes and waterways.” 

“This includes the removal of excessive sedimentation, deepening of waterways and environmental dredging. We are proud to contribute to the sustainable development of the country’s important marine infrastructure.”

The order also includes three floating IHC Multi-Booster stations, each delivering 895kW of power, as well as HDPE floating pipelines (10 x 1,500m).

In addition, IHC will provide a comprehensive training package for crew and staff.

  • dismountable and transportable over land;
  • allows for single-handed operations;
  • easily customisable with a wide range of optional equipment ;
