Wasa Dredging VIDEO: Rock Blasting in Sandnessjoen, Norway

Wasa Dredging, a Finnish marine offshore and inland water construction contractor, is currently executing a small but demanding project in Sandnessjøen, Norway.

For the works, Wasa has mobilized combined dredging/blasting pontoon Hector, two barges (Miika II and Dana II) and two tugboats.

The scope of work consists of dredging and disposing of 1.000m³ polluted masses, careful blasting of approximately 10.000m³ solid bedrock in the harbor and dredging of approximately 25.000m³ of blasted rock.

The project also includes the following operations:

  • building the core for a new quay area;
  • filling up the new quay area.

The material used for this scheme is blasted bedrock with some smaller and larger graded material.

Wasa has just released a short video of the blasting operations executed in Sandnessjøen.
