Cutter Dredger JULIA Launching Ceremony (VIDEO)

Royal IHC has just released an interesting video of the launching ceremony of the mining cutter dredger JULIA.

The new custom-built dredger hit the water at IHC yard in Kinderdijk, the Netherlands, on May 20.

The vessel will operate at Kenmare’s Wet Concentrator Plant C project at its Moma Titanium Minerals Mine in Mozambique.

JULIA is the third dredger in Kenmare’s fleet that is designed and built by IHC based on the success of the first two vessels, the Mary-Ann and Catarina.

Now, the vessel will be finalized and tested at IHC’s yard in Kinderdijk, before disassembly for transportation to Mozambique, where production is expected to start before the end of 2019, said IHC.
