Updated: May 10, 2023

CCCC Shanghai Dredging Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Communications Construction Company Limited (CCCC), has developed and built several green and advanced drag suction dredgers to support dredging projects in China.

Hang Jun 6008 is currently the most automatic single-rake drag suction dredger in China. It is energy-saving, highly-efficient and has a strong dredging capacity.

Relying on the dredge track presentation system, the dredger is capable of carrying out visualized and refined dredging missions under water.

The company has also contributed to building of the Xin Hai Hu 8, the large drag suction dredger independently developed by China.

The dredge is 130.3 meters long, 25.6 meters wide and 9.2 meters high.

It is equipped with China’s largest frequency conversion mud pump driver, and high-voltage power grid and automatic dredging systems. Its systems for automatic navigation and dredging, hydrologic monitoring and mud pump control and management have also been upgraded in recent years.
