Royal IHC has awarded Pentair Fairbanks Nijhuis an order to supply cooling water, rinsing and gland pumps for two new cutter section dredgers to be built for the Suez Canal Authority (SCA).

The order includes supply of a total of 102 pump sets for both vessels.

Royal IHC recently received an order from the Suez Canal Authority (SCA) for the two cutter suction dredgers. These dredgers, which will be used to deepen and maintain the Suez Canal in Egypt, have been specially developed for the dredging works in hard ground.

“The design for these new vessels is based on a cutter suction dredger previously built by IHC, for which we delivered thirty pump sets almost 25 years ago,” said Henk Jan van Essen, Senior Area Sales Manager at Pentair.

“After all these years, the performance and reliability of these pumps is still very good. As a result, we were immediately contacted for this assignment.”

Each dredger will be equipped with 51 pump sets that range from a variety of Pentair Fairbanks Nijhuis pump models to address specific needs of the project.

The pump sets will be supplied with different models, ranging from VGT, HG1, HG2 and Venus, according to Dutchwatersector.com.
