The Port Authority of Douala, Cameroon, is about to receive new dredging equipment including an IHC Beaver 50 cutter suction dredger, the company reports.

According to the port, the new dredger will arrive in Douala in the next couple of days.

IHC Beaver CSDs are reliable, fuel efficient, have low maintenance costs and are extremely productive at all dredging depths.

To date, Royal IHC has supplied more than 800 of these standard cutter suction dredgers worldwide.

The new dredger – named Vigilance – will be used to clear the port’s access channel, docks, as well as other water bodies in the area.

The officials also announced that an IHC Easydredge type suction dredger will be acquired soon for Douala-Bonabéri port.

At the end they concluded that their own grab dredger Chantal Biya, which has been unusable for quite some time, will also be soon operational as the repairs and refurbishment of the vessel’s hull are almost complete now.
