Side stone dumping vessel

Side stone dumping vessels are self-propelled vessels that are typically used for scour protection for offshore wind turbines and offshore rigs, the construction of breakwaters, and subsea pipeline protection. The vessels are capable of transporting and installing a wide variety of different sizes of rock, varying from gravel to rocks weighing up to 800 kg. 

A side stone dumping vessel has worked on the construction of a 2,200-m-long breakwater. The construction is part of a new container terminal in Costa Rica, which will boost the Costa Rican economy. Read about this project in progress in our magazine
