Rangga Rishar Saputra, Country Manager Indonesia for IHC, was pleased with the signing of the contract with Jhonlin Marine Trans. At the ceremony he commented: “The investment in the Beagle® 4 and Beaver® 65 as the first purchase from IHC Dredging is a significant commitment. We look forward to building what we hope will be a long term partnership as we work together to develop their dredging capabilities.”

The Beagle® 4 is part of a series of trailing suction hopper dredgers with a proven design, designed for a wide range of dredging operations and known for high efficiency and maximum deployability. The dredger has a hopper capacity of 4,000 m3 and can dredge to a depth of 25 meters.

Known for its fuel efficiency, low maintenance costs and extreme productivity at all dredging depths, the Beaver® 65 is the largest of the standard cutter suction dredgers. The Beaver® 65 has a 650 mm pipe diameter and can dredge to a maximum depth of 18 meters. The Beaver® 65 for Jhonlin will be extended to a maximum dredging depth of 25 meters.

Both vessels will be delivered from stock in mid-2024.
