Royal IHC Confirms NMDC Deal

Royal IHC recently signed a contract with National Marine Dredging Company (NMDC, based in Abu Dhabi, UAE) to build yet another state-of-the-art trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD).

According to IHC, the new vessel builds on the excellent partnership & collaboration between the two companies and on the success of the 6,000m³ TSHD ARZANA, which was delivered by IHC in 2018.

In addition, IHC will deliver the first TSHD simulator to the Middle East, further allowing NMDC to develop & strengthen its excellent in-house dredging capabilities & competencies.

The new TSHD will be delivered featuring a number of technologically enhanced innovations including an enlarged hopper capacity of 8,000m³ and a larger dredging depth of 45 meters.

The design of the new TSHD is a result of close cooperation between IHC and NMDC, leading to a tailor-made solution that combines shallow draft and a large dredging depth with high maneuverability, whilst it is specifically designed for operation in high temperatures.

Our partnership with NMDC has proven to be successful in the past, and we are pleased to continue working with them and add more value to their advanced fleet,” commented Royal IHC CEO Dave Vander Heyde.

With the new 8,000m³ TSHD and the TSHD simulator, NMDC is aiming to reassert itself as a long-term global player in the dredging market. The new vessel will enable the company to be more competitive on a wider range of projects, and is a valuable strategic addition to its growing fleet.
