About rock installation
Now, what's that all about installing rock ? Sounds pretty cool uh? But is that really interesting?
Okay, we'll tell you more about it. You can also check www.rockdumping.eu
Rock is used to protect pipelines, for seabed preparation to install platforms, or for berms to lay pipelines on.
The fallipe technique is used to install rock on the seabed on greater water depths varying from 20 to 850 metres.
Rock dump ROV
At the bottom of the fall pipe a ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) is attached. By means of thrusters the ROV can be manoeuvred to follow a pre-defined track and so place the rock with the required quantity and dimensions on the required place.
