Because the weight distribution of dredger is quite different, people need to arrange airbags accordingly.Dredger's special bottom structure is somewhat obstacle for air bags rolling thus some additional structures may be deployed for the launch.
Eversafe Marine made the detailed calculation of the dredger launch and found insufficiency airbag
quantity in some area due to unexpected low water level. Then additional 6 pieces airbags were transported to the shipyard urgently.
