Royal IHC (IHC) designs, builds and maintains innovative equipment and vessels for maritime service providers operating from sea level to ocean floor. It is the global  market leader for efficient dredging and mining equipment and vessels – with vast  experience accumulated over decades – and a reliable supplier of innovative ships and tools for offshore construction.

IHC has in-house expertise for engineering and manufacturing advanced  equipment, integrated standard and custom-built vessels, and also providing life-cycle support. This integrated systematic approach has helped to develop  optimum product performance and long-term business partnerships.


Development of the IHC Slicktrail
In collaboration with the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water  Management and a Dutch dredging contractor, IHC has been involved with the development of the IHC Slicktrail since its initial design stages.

This innovative ship combines the role of a oil recovery vessel, operating on  successfully proven design principles, with that of a modern trailing suction  hopper dredger (TSHD), for use in the maintenance of coastal waters and  harbour access channels. 

The major benefit of this combination is that it provides the availability of a large recovery capacity with a vessel not expressly built for pollution-control purposes. While carrying out dredging operations close to its assigned oil combat area, the IHC Slicktrail is also on standby to deal with potential large oil spillages.

Since its introduction, the IHC Slicktrail has been built in a variety of different configurations, from TSHD’s with a self-supporting and removable oil recovery installation to TSHD’s with a complete integrated oil recovery installation to serve as a first-line vessel.
