Close association with port development activities have sharpened SHOFT’s approach and led to a deeper understanding of dredger and dredging requirements. Starting with auxiliary vessels and thereafter building a sophisticated Water Injection Dredger, we are poised to take on construction of full range of dredgers - CSDs, TSHDs, Grabs, Back Hoes, WIDs, Shoal Busters, etc.
- Attention to operating demands can be seen even in the Multi Cats built by us - careful balancing for high performance of many functions - towing, anchor handling, transporting of personnel, facilitating repair & maintenance of dredging equipment, etc. Multi Cats operate practically round the clock 24 hrs x 365 days and need to be rugged and easy to handle. The fourth Multi Cat for Dredging Corporation of India is under construction.
- The design and construction of the Water Injection Dredger was a giant leap forward and a great learning experience. A cooperative effort by involving owners, sourcing basic design, dredging design and operational knowhow from several international designers .
