Subsea Rock Installation
“Facts About Subsea Rock Installation” describes techniques being used for rock placement to protect marine infrastructure, especially for offshore energy.
Two types of subsea rock installation can be distinguished:
- One is for shallow water and is typically used for coastal and embankment protection works and for scour protection for the offshore oil, gas and wind energy developments at up to 50 metres of water depths.
- The other is rock installation at greater water depths, usually ranging from 50 to 2,200 metres, and is most frequently applied for the offshore oil and gas industry.
