Royal IHC tests SCA’s new dredger (VIDEO)
Royal IHC has just released this amazing video of the CSD Mohab Mameesh undergoing her sea trials near the Dutch coast in the North Sea.
During the sea trials, multiple installations have successfully been tested.
“Now we are going into the final phase of the building process, finalizing the vessel and prepare it for transport to Egypt and delivery to our respected client Suez Canal Authority,” said IHC.
Once delivered, the 29,190kW heavy-duty rock CSD will be used to maintain and improve the Suez Canal, which connects the Mediterranean and Red seas.
The vessel, characterised by its long slender shape and high spud towers, has an overall length of 147.4 metres, with a maximum dredging depth of 35 metres.
Equipped with one submerged – and two inboard – dredge pumps, the installed cutter power of the vessel is 4,800kW.
