C H Horn is a 26m long, modern, compact and efficient self-propelled hopper which was formerly equipped with a fixed grab crane. The fixed crane has now been removed to allow room on its deck for a specially modified tracked Hyundai Excavator.
The excavator, a Hyundai HX 300 L, is new to Jenkins Marine and weighs 30 tons with a large 1.5m3 bucket capacity. The excavator was supplied with a custom made lengthened dipper arm, with optimised geometry for improved dredging reach.
The HX300L boasts an eco-friendly, high-performance engine which ensures both excellent fuel efficiency and high power performance. The robust upper and lower frame structure can endure external shock and high-load work with tested high durability to cope with the demands of marine based projects. In order to achieve efficient “arm-in” and “arm-out” operation with the boom fixed while on a moving vessel the HX Series applies boom floating control, allowing consistantly stable operating – perfect for dredging operations.
