Saudis snatch new IHC Beaver dredger

Doha: Advanced Construction Company, a member of the Al Geithy Group, based in Saudi Arabia, has become the first firm to buy into Dutch firm IHC Merwede’s new dredger design. The IHC Beaver 65 DDSP dredger will work in the Red Sea when it is delivered later this year.

The vessel has been designed with an integrated spud carrier, which IHC Merwede says makes for a stronger dredging vessel, especially in waves.

Another key feature of the IHC Beaver® 65 DDSP is the directly driven submerged pump (DDSP) mounted on the cutter ladder, allowing the vessel to dredge at high-mixture densities, without any limitation on the vacuum – even at larger dredging depths.  [18/04/13]
