Rock Placing

Herbosch-Kiere owns the Atlantis stone dumping vessel and the Albatros crane vessel, which is designed to carry out dredging operations and the placing of stones. The two vessels, we are able to carry out stone dumping operations on the water with maximum efficiency. The stones are accurately positioned with the aid of advanced on-board computers. The dimensions of the stones vary from small size such as steel slag to blocks of some tens of tons.

Using our floating equipment, we have successfully built and strengthened dikes and embankments, filled scour holes, buried cables in the seabed and protected underwater structures.
