How do split barges operate?

Split barges are being used for dredging, filling and hydraulic engineering works. They bring the dredged material to the place it needed, splits the hull and after the hopper has unloaded the dredged material the hydraulic systems closes the hull and the barge repeats the process. Usually split barges are being used to dump soil, sand or stone.

Active industries

MPS clients are active in dredging, construction, offshore and other industries all around the world and use our equipment as free-floating, stabilised or raisable/self-raising platforms. The installation of one or more hydraulic and/or stabilising spud systems also makes the container pontoon configuration ideal for piling, drilling, building or dredging.

Apart from our pontoons, jack-ups and workboats, MPS offers additional equipment to meet the specific project requirements of our clients. This includes, among other things mooring winches, hydraulic drive units, cable guides, raked sections, propulsion systems, wooden mattresses and much more to ensure that every work platform is tailored to suit the operator’s needs. Part of our equipment is directly available for purchase or rental. You can find an overview of all the available options including a specification overview.
