Split Hopper Barges

Designed to deployed with cutter suction dredgers. Cutter suction dredgers cannot store dredged sediments on board, and for some applications it is not possible to discharge the dredged sediments through pipelines. In such cases, the dredged material can be pumped directly into split hopper barges, which are moored alongside the cutter suction dredger. SplitĀ hopper barges are also loaded by means of backhoe dredgers.
