Assembly of the 2000th pump - Royal IHC

Posted April 22, 2019

Royal IHC delivered the 2,000th dredge pump to be built by the company.

The 2,000th pump is one of two onboard double-walled dredge pumps for Jan De Nul Group’s new self-designed 18,000m3 trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) that are built for our customer Jan De Nul Group. These pumps have been designed to deliver a total installed power of 7,000kW each, which enables them to discharge 33 bars of pressure when operated concurrently.

The pumps are equipped with IHC’s latest Curve® technology. The Curve® impeller, with its innovative shape and blade curvature, ensures that the pumps perform with excellent suction properties over the prolonged lifetime of the product.
