Third IHC dredger for Kenmare

The CSD Julia is the third dredger in Kenmare’s operation that’s designed and built by IHC. Its design is based on the success of the first two IHC dredgers in Kenmare’s fleet, Mary-Ann and Catarina.

The dredger is expected to operate at 600tph with the potential to be upgraded to 1,500tph in the future.
