Barge for Rock Transport

We are nearing the completion of a long-term charter of a 100 x 25m flattop barge (abt 10,000 DWT) used on a breakwater renovation project in the Baltic. The barge was fitted with deck protection, stanchions and sidewalls for the operation.

The project comprised of two phases. Phase 1 strengthened the existing southern and northern breakwaters without changing their configuration.

In order to achieve this, both breakwaters were raised, and retaining walls were installed in some of the hydraulic structures.

Phase two calls for the deepening of the shipping channel to a depth of 17 meters. This will make the port accessible to the largest ships that can enter the Baltic Sea.
