Picture of the Day: Fall Pipe & Mining Vessel Joseph Plateau

Joseph Plateau was launched in 2012 at the Spanish shipyard Construcciones Navales de Norte in Sestao.

This 191,5 m long vessel is used for precise rock dumping to a depth of 2,000 m.

The system for the unfolding of the fall pipe is extremely advanced and operates fully automatically.

At the bottom of the fall pipe there is a ROV (Remote Operated Vehicle) that accurately corrects the position of the lower end of the fall pipe.

The vessel has a 31,500 ton loading capacity and makes it possible to dump 2,000 tons of rock per hour at a depth of 2,000 m.

The vessel can accomodate 84 persons.
