UMM-ELZEMOUL/AL-KHATEM/AL-HAMRA: 3 X 8,990 KW (3 X 12,330 HP)

The three vessels, the Umm-Elzemoul, Al-Khatem and Al-Hamra, were designed and built throughout by IHC, and display all the features of the modern cutter suction dredger, such as: an electrically-driven underwater pump; two IHC double-walled dredge-pumps in the pontoon; a 20-ton capacity revolving crane which can be moved over the entire length of the deck; a ladder gantry which forms part of the ship's structure, thus affording great strength and rigidity; a spud carriage with a 6 m stroke; anchor booms; a spud tilting installation; and extensive instrumentation. They were built to the requirements, and under the supervision, of Bureau Veritas.
