About this equipment

 

The delivery of a 1,700kW jet pump unit and the modification of the complete suction tube was completed on schedule. Furthermore, the underwater pump unit was redesigned to accommodate a new 6MW submersible pump unit, including an e-motor delivered by the customer and a new IHC high efficiency dredge pump with Curve technology.
