PROJECT:  SAND DREDGE  LAUNCHING at ASL SHIPYARD
The 4800ton sand dredge was a unique project to New Oasis. It stretches 102 metres in length and 21 metres in width. Due to its peculiar ‘H-shaped’ design, the contact surface between the barge and the airbags was not enough to launch it into the waters successfully and safely. Our engineers re-designed and altered the airbag pressures and created a base frame. The base frame, a base made with steel, placed strategically at the front on the sides and the rear to increase the contact surface similar to that of a regular barge.
The launching was exceptionally magnificent and it was one of New Oasis’s proudest moments.
