Barges

Dredging consists of removing material from a determined position, although the operation does not end there. In some cases, the material needs disposal in a precise location at sea. VINCI Construction Maritime et Fluvial owns numerous split barges with a maximum sediment-volume capacity of 770 m³. On-board positioning systems and submerged opening and closing actuators are used for precisely-sited, optimised disposal of materials.

The KOSTALDEA, the pride of the VINCI Construction Maritime et Fluvial fleet


Already equipped since the 1990s with the Ar-Mor dredging pontoon, VINCI Construction Maritime et Fluvial launched in 2013 its larger sister-vessel, the Kostaldéa, extending the company's operating capability to a depth of over 19 m. This dipper pontoon carrying a Liebherr P 984 shovel was designed and developed entirely in-house by the VINCI Construction Maritime et Fluvial equipment department's design office. This plant item has now become indispensable for port improvement and deepening works, and enables VINCI Construction Maritime et Fluvial to reach a dredging depth unrivalled in France and to increase considerably the productivity of its worksites by simplifying and optimising the equipment's movements.
