Kiasma Group, an Italian manufacturer of HDPE pipes, floats and systems specialized for the dredging sector, is continuing with process of progress and development of technologies and products, in a research and development way, capable to produce innovation in a form of improved technology.

Working in collaboration with highly specialized engineers from the marine sector, in synergy with the universities, researchers, petrochemical laboratories producers of high technological value polymers, Kiasma has implemented an application of floats utilization that – once applied to HDPE pipes – constitutes a safety barrier (KSB) and a defense safety barrier (KSDB).

The KSB and KSDB safety barriers consist of a several floats coupled together, mounted on HDPE pipes that allow a free rotation of 360°.

The floats are connected to and from a safety barrier with any desired length.

According to Kiasma, the anchor points are established at intervals of about 50 meters.

The floats are supplied with a corrugated external surface highly resistant to loads and (or) equipped with a series of shaped tips to adapt to the particular threat.

The floats that compose the barrier are filled with closed cell polyurethane foam making the barrier unsinkable, even if perforated by physical damage such as bullet holes or impacts caused by boats.

Since the floats are rotating and the tips are made of stainless steel, intruders are not given the opportunity to climb over them.

The KSB and  KSDB barriers may resist impacts of 25/28 tons, said Kiasma.

All the materials that compose it have a long-term lifetime in sea water.

The KSB and KSDB barriers can be applied in:

  • Navy industry;
  • Terminal development industry;
  • Military Bases;
  • Nuclear Power Plants;
  • Dams;
  • Maritime work-site protection.

3rd International Congress Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging

Russia’s leading maritime industry Media Group PortNews (www.portnews.ru) holds a traditional annual Congress “Hydraulic Engineering Structures and Dredging” in Moscow. 

The two-day Congress includes the 7th International Forum of Dredging Companies and the 3rd Technical Conference “Modern Solutions for Hydraulic Engineering”.

Infrastructure development is among the real sources of Russia’s economy growth. Construction of port facilities and new hydraulic engineering structures on the country’s inland waterways constitute an essential part of all infrastructure projects. It is important to take into account the best international practices to implement these projects effectively.

The program of the Congress will be devoted to the latest technologies for dredging and hydraulic engineering works. Speakers and delegates will refer to real projects to discuss specifics features of dredging works, as well as dedicated fleet and equipment involved.
