CHARTER - Atlantis - Stone Dumping Eastern Scheldt

Stone Dumping in Eastern Scheldt with Atlantis

The Atlantis dumped steel slag in the Eastern Scheldt to fill up the pits at the Eastern and Western part of the Storm Surge Barrier to protect its safety and stability. The steel slag is transported by ship to keep up with the production speed. During tide and low water the works continued in shifts. It is a matter of precise logistic planning to gear the supply and processing of the steel slag. The stone dumping is also precision work and was strictly supervised by survey teams who were permanently present.
