Radio Holland Netherlands booked an order recently to deliver a NavCom package to two cutter suction dredgers, built by Royal IHC.

The vessels will have an overall length of 147.4 meters and provide a maximum dredging depth of 35 meters. In addition, they will offer accommodation facilities for 73 people. Equipped with one submerged – and two inboard – dredge pumps, the installed cutter power will be 4,800kW.

The CSDs are being built in the Netherlands and it is expected that these vessels will be delivered in 2020 and 2021.

In detail, Radio Holland supplies the navigation sensors to keep the stationary dredgers on position and the supplied AIS (Automatic Identification System) will keep the vessel visible for the shipping traffic in the area.

Commenting the latest news, Kenneth de Grood, Account Manager Yachting at Radio Holland Netherlands, said: “We are happy to partner with Royal IHC again for the NavCom on these two dredgers. Royal IHC is globally renowned as a specialized, leading designer and builder of dredging vessels.”

“Important for IHC is the fact that Radio Holland is an independent company and supplier, also able to perform service everywhere with its global network. As the vessels will operate in Egypt at the Suez Canal, it is great that we have Radio Holland offices in Egypt, who can support locally with maintenance of the equipment.”

The equipment package consists of a mix of Furuno equipment and other equipment brands for VHF, MF/HF, Navtex, DGPS, as well as a Magnetic Compass, SART, EPIRB, Wind, ATEX UHF portable and GMDSS Portable handheld.
