"Mahaa Jarraafu" sets sail on its maiden voyage to Maldives.

MTCC’s Trailing Suction Hopper Dredger, “Mahaa Jarraaf” has set sail on its maiden voyage to the Maldives from China, taking the long way home via Singapore.

With a length of overall 92.95 meters and a hopper capacity of 3.700m³ per load, Mahaa Jarraaf is the largest in the Easydredge series of standard twin-screw trailing suction hopper dredgers, designed and built by Royal IHC.

TSHD Mahaa Jarraafu is equipped with the specially designed Easydredge dredging equipment, including a state-of-the-art IHC dredge pump and a slender hull for increased speed and low fuel consumption.

Mahaa Jarraafu has a “world dredging” equipment package, which includes an adjustable overflow, bottom doors, jet water system and a shore pumping installation. This makes it a versatile trailing suction hopper dredger. The ship is also equipped with an extended suction pipe and an underwater pump that enables the vessel to dredge to a depth of 50 metres.

MTCC’s Mahaa Jarraafu will revolutionize the dredging industry in the Maldives and is expected to arrive on 30th October 2017.
