Latest event on Norther

Tideway to carry out scour protection works  from July 2018. The vessels Flintstone and Rollingstone are equipped with a downpipe system and an underwater robot to carefully place the stones on the bottom. The Rollingstone will place the blocks of stone (stones of nearly 120 kg each) through a separated large diameter pipe. Around 80,000 tons of filter material and 45,000 tons of stones will be installed in this way. This project includes the placing of two protective layers against the erosion in the places Read more
