BOSKALIS ON THE MOVE BRAZILIAN SEMINAR | 15 AUGUST 2018 AT THE SEMINAR: TERRAMARE & ROCKFALL – INTERNATIONAL UNDERWATER DRILLING AND BLASTING
O n 15 August 2018, Boskalis held a seminar in Itajaí, Brazil. The seminar was part of the Boskalis On The Move marketing project, in which the company is pre- senting its international marine construction expertise at various locations around the world. For Terramare, the Brazilian seminar was also a major event, as the company had the opportunity to present, in cooperation with the British company Rockfall, the in- ternational underwater drilling and blasting services it has to offer. Terramare was represented at the event by Project Manager Sami Soikkeli . “It was great, of course, to also be able to present underwater drilling and blasting services, benefits and related issues in Brazil, where as well as ports and channels there is also an emphasis on shoreline maintenance, particular due to erosion. In Brazil, mainte- nance of shoreline areas is a continuous process,” says Sami. “At the same time, we became acquainted with local needs, practices and legislation in marine construction. The event also
enabled us to present underwater drilling and blasting solutions for environmental construction. We have experience, for example, of constructing breakwaters and artificial reefs implemented with rock waste and of encapsulating contaminated dredging masses. Utilising rock waste obtained from underwater drilling and blast- ing in various projects aroused a lot of interest,” explains Sami.
