How does a split hopper barge work?

A split hopper barge is basically a dredging vessel that is able to split over its longitudinal axis to discharge its cargo. This is made possible because of the two half-hulls that are attached to the barge by hinges at the top and hydraulic cylinders at the bottom. Split hopper barges are used for dredging, filling and hydraulic engineering works. Transporting dredging materials from one place to another, like rocks, sand, soil and rubbish. Split hopper barges are not capable of moving itself, therefore it needs help of push boats. MPS has everything available for your dredging operation.
