Shanti Sagar 17, the largest dredger under IRClass, was delivered to its owners by Royal IHC in the Netherlands on November 20.

The 8,000 cbm vessel is a trailing suction hopper dredger (TSHD) constructed for Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone (SEZ) Limited under the special survey of Indian Register of Shipping (IRClass). All the statutory certificates are issued by IRClass on behalf of St. Vincent & Grenadines flag, IRClass said.

The ship is built in compliance with the applicable IMO requirements including SOLAS, MARPOL, Loadline and MLC 2006. It is the first in the series of two dredgers – the second vessel is expected to be delivered this week.

Launched in March this year, the vessel belongs to the shipbuilder’s IHC Beagle® series which is designed with a number of standard features, including “high-performance dredge pumps, an innovative hull shape and an ergonomically designed bridge layout and consoles”.

As explained, Shanti Sagar 17, which features a length of 104 meters and a width of 24 meters, is also the first dredger to be assigned with dredging freeboard as per Guidelines for Assignment of Reduced Freeboards for Dredgers, DR-68, at the time of the delivery.
