Royal IHC has launched DRAGA 20: BIJAO, an electric, dismountable wheel dredger for Mineros Aluvial SAS, a gold mining company in Colombia.

The dredger is designed to remove overburden by dredging to expose gold bearing sediments.

With a total power of 800kVA the dredger is capable to operate to a dredging dept of 15 meters and is fitted with a dredging wheel to handle the sticky clay of the overburden.

The name of the dredger DRAGA 20: BIJAO refers to the ancient name of El Bagre, the municipality where Mineros Aluvial has its operational facilities.

This will be the 8th Royal IHC-built dredger in Mineros’ fleet, demonstrating the company’s strong relationship with Mineros.

Now, the dredger will be further finalized and commissioned at the quay side at the IHC’s shipyard in Kinderdijk.

Finally the vessel will be shipped to Colombia where it is expected to arrive in February 2020.
