Customer:     Aarsleff
Time of execution: 2016
Description of the project: Dredging 110.000 m³- 1.500 m³/day – Granite stone and very hard moraine clay


In this project, we had to dredge a basin for a new cruise pier at Visby Harbour on Gothland. The materials were very hard. At first, they were loosened up with the use of a hydraulic ripper, and afterwards they were excavated and transported to a quay for further depositing on land with a dumper. The project was completed with minimal downtime, keeping us on schedule. The work was at water depth of 11 m.
