New Rock Dumping Record Established by Van Oord
A new rock dumping record has been established by Van Oord 's flexible fallpipe vessel Tertnes, the vessel having completed the protection of a cable crossing in water depths of 887m.
The offshore section of the pipeline is 516km long and has been at a maximum water depth of 1,117m.
Van Oord was subcontracted by the Italian pipelaying company Saipem to carry out the rock-dumping on six cable crossing locations along the LGTS pipeline.
The previous record for rock-dumping was also established in the Mediterranean Sea in 1997 - just east of Gibraltar - in water depths of 820m.
