IHC Beaver 65

Following the launch of the IHC Beaver 65 DDSP in February, the first vessel has been sold to Advanced Construction Company, a member of the Al Geithy Group, based in Saudi Arabia.

Testing was successful completed at IHC Merwede’s shipyard in Sliedrecht, The Netherlands, in early March and delivery to Jeddah will be organized in the second quarter of this year. After delivery the dredger will begin work in the Red Sea.

The new vessel succeeds the highly successful IHC Beaver 6518 and belongs to the renowned IHC Beaver  series of standard cutter suction dredgers. She has been designed with an integrated spud carrier, which 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. Working in combination with the Curve impeller, this allows the vessel to dredge at high-mixture densities, without any limitation on the vacuum – even at larger dredging depths. Compared to other dredgers in its class, she is equipped with greater cutting and pumping power.

Built in accordance with BV Coastal Area classification, the vessel can be used on inland water and out at sea. Like all IHC Beaver dredgers, she offers easy dismounting and transportation possibilities and is built from stock for short delivery times.
