The system will consist of 2 Wheel Mounted Apron Steel Feeders and 2 TB 52 (170ft) Radial Telescopic Shiploaders for handling rock material to DEME Specialised Rock Installation Vessels.

The rocks are used in coastal engineering and shoreline protection projects.

The purpose of using offshore rocks is to dissipate wave energy, reduce erosion, and protect coastal structures from the damaging effects of waves and currents.

According to Telestack, these rocks act as a barrier, absorbing and reflecting wave energy, which helps to prevent further erosion of the shoreline and maintain the stability of the surrounding areas.

The Telestack Mobile system will form a key part of the material handling process in loading this material to the specialised DEME Rock Installation Vessels, said the company.
