In early 2016, Royal IHC sold two IHC Beagle® 8 trailing suction hopper dredgers (TSHDs) to Adani Group, India’s largest private multi-port operator. The two IHC Beagle® 8 vessels have been added to Adani’s fleet in line with its impressive expansion, and used for the maintenance and development of its numerous ports.
About the IHC Beagle® series
The IHC Beagle® series achieves high levels of efficiency and maximum uptime as a result of its uniform design and the use of high-end components. The vessels are reliable performers, with an emphasis on operational excellence. While standardised, the two IHC Beagle® dredgers have been equipped with a bespoke set of options. For example, SHANTI SAGAR 17 is deployed for capital dredging with challenging soils, and has therefore been equipped with a heavier draghead and additional propulsion power.

Air Conditioning & Mechanical Ventilation
Heinen & Hopman was awarded the turnkey contract to provide the engineering, construction and installation of the air conditioning and mechanical ventilation system. Two central air handling units – suitable for mixing, filtering and cooling of the air – maintain the accommodation, wheelhouse and galley at a comfortable temperature. A chilled water unit provides the required cooling capacity to remove the unwanted heat from the air.
The air conditioning system has been designed based on the following design conditions:
Outside: 35˚C – 70% R.H.
Inside: 25˚C / 50% R.H.
