A well-designed, impermeable floor jetty consisting of eight layers, along with an efficient drainage system, enables convenient handling of cut blocks and other materials directly from the vessel. This process eliminates the need for contact with the intertidal zone, ensuring a streamlined recycling process and minimizing the risk of any spillage into the sub-soil or intertidal area. Additionally, this type of jetty provides constant and unrestricted access between the vessel and the jetty at all times.
The yard has a dedicated cutting zone on impermeable 8 layered floor for cutting operations.
