Wärtsilä has won a contract for two new 8000m3 trailing suction hopper dredgers being built for the Adani group, India's largest private multi-port operator.

The vessels are the first of a new IHC Beagle series designed by Royal IHC (IHC) of the Netherlands. IHC will also build the dredgers.

"We are very familiar with Wärtsilä's propulsion solutions, and are confident that they are a good choice for this new series of dredgers,” said Sander Korving, director supply chain management of Royal IHC.  

“The vessels will feature high levels of efficiency and maximum uptime, and the reliability and excellent performance of Wärtsilä's main engines are key contributors to this," he added.

The Wärtsilä scope of supply comprises two 8-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 main engines for the first vessel, and two 7-cylinder Wärtsilä 32 main engines for the second one, together with four Wärtsilä CPPs with shafts. In addition, Wärtsilä will supply a Super Trident sewage treatment plant with vacuum generation for both vessels.

Delivery of this equipment will begin in September 2016 with the first of the dredgers scheduled for delivery by the end of 2017.
