Mahaa Jarraafu Dredger

Maldives Transport and Contracting Company (MTCC) has undocked and begun initial tests of their new dredger ‘Mahaa Jarraafu’.

The dredger was constructed by Netherlands company IHC in a Chinese Boatyard, and MTCC’s CEO Ibrahim Ziyath and Chairman Ahmed Niyaz attended the ceremony to launch the vessel. This hopper suction vessel, which will be able to dredge sand from up to 50 meters below, is over 92 meters long and 16 meters wide, and is capable of reclaiming a hectare of land in two days.
