Naming and launch of dredger "Chang Jiang Kou 01"

"Chang Jiang Kou 01" is launched at IHC Merwede

IHC Merwede is building the vessel for Yangtze Estuary Waterway Administration Bureau MOT, which is based in the People's Republic of China.

The contract for the design, construction and delivery of two 12,000m³ trailing suction hopper dredgers ("Chang Jiang Kou 01" and "Chang Jiang Kou 02") was signed between Yangtze Estuary Waterway Administration Bureau MOT and IHC Dredgers in July 2008. The first dredger will be delivered in the second quarter of 2012.

The two ships are destined to carry out maintenance dredging jobs over a distance of 122km. The 132m long and 27.3mwide dredgers have been specifically designed with the high-current velocity and soil properties of the Yangtze River in mind. This is one of the reasons why the vessels will be equipped with the patented IHC Merwede Wild Dragon® draghead. the vessels can operate up to a dredging depth of 25m. The hopper capacity amounts to 12,000 m³. Accomodation is provided for 37 persons.

At Dutch shipyard IHC Merwede the 12,000m³ trailing suction hopper dredger, "Chang Jiang Kou 01", was officially named and launched.
