Two weeks ago, Royal IHC symbolically handed over the 2,000th dredge pump to be built by the company to its new owner – Jan De Nul Group.
The 2,000th pump is one of two onboard double-walled dredge pumps for Jan De Nul Group’s new self-designed 18,000m³ trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) that is currently being built.
According to IHC, these pumps have been designed to deliver a total installed power of 7,000kW each, which enables them to discharge 33 bars of pressure when operated concurrently.
The pumps are equipped with IHC’s latest Curve® technology. The Curve® impeller, with its innovative shape and blade curvature, ensures that the pumps perform with excellent suction properties over the prolonged lifetime of the product, said IHC.
The Kinderdijk based company has just released this very interesting video named ‘Assembly of the 2000th Pump – Royal IHC’.
