01 is more than enough blasted rock – around one million cubic metres,” says Terramare Site Manager Markku Pöyhönen. “A total of 900,000 cubic metres of blast- ed rock will be used at the location. The blasted rock filling is the responsibility of a subcontractor, E. Hartikainen Oy, which both crushes and transports the blasted rock. The blasted rock is transported to the site using high-performance trucks, of which the most powerful are the Caterpil- lar 777 series. When loaded, the trucks in question weigh 160 tonnes,” explains Pöyhönen. The sea-filling includes 40 metres wide stone embankments and erosion protec- tion, implemented on the edges of the fill- ing area, after the completion of which rock-filling continue in the interior part of the site. Deep compaction of the rock fill will be done from onshore by dynamic compaction. After completion, the sea-fill-


ing, including surface crushed aggregate, will be 1.5 metres above sea level. In the centre of the fill area a canal traversing the residential area will be excavated later. “Alongside the filling, which is progress- ing smoothly, we are also carrying out cleaning work. We have delimited and

protected the area with a floating protec- tive pontoon screen, which prevents occa- sional rubbish found amidst the rock waste from spreading into the surrounding water- ways. Rubbish is collected from the shores and sea of the contract area, sorted and transported for appropriate waste process-
