Beyond Sand & Sea

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the IADC, a limited edition book ‘Beyond Sand & Sea’ was released.
It shows the last 50 years of dredging achievements as depicted through 50 iconic projects.

Gravity Base Foundations for the Thornton Bank Offshore Wind Farm
Gravity Base Foundations for the Thornton Bank Offshore Wind Farm

Innovative dredging technologies played a key role in the realisation of these novel Gravity Base Foundations, which can accommodate 5MW Wind Turbine Generators and be placed in very deep waters.

Pre-Trenching, Pre-Sweeping and Backfilling for the 36" Offshore Pipeline Project in Taiwan
Pre-Trenching, Pre-Sweeping and Backfilling for the 36″ Offshore Pipeline Project in Taiwan

A trailing suction hopper dredger equipped with a deep-dredging installation proved to be extremely versatile and saved the pipelaying project from large delays.
