What are the benefits of using concrete as ship ballast?
To produce, deliver and install concert is not a labour-intensive operation as the material is fluid until set there is no requirement for personnel to enter or work within confined spaces. Installation can be undertaken quickly reducing dock time in excess of 250 tonnes per day installed.
Installation can be either dry in dock, floating alongside or at the client’s site. The high weight to available space ratio is an excellent option. It can be removed and recycled and does not cause any health hazards on the vessel as it will not support the growth of mould or fungus. Compliant with MARPOL and IBC codes.
