MPP has a device for spreading gravel to the seabed. The ship and device were built at the CRIST shipyard. StoGda supported CRIST and developed the design to the Detail Design phase and provided complete Workshop Documentation.
The gravel spreading device is remotely controlled. The device is lowered under the hull of the barge to 46 meters below the waterline. The MPP hull is 130 meters long. The entire unit with the transmission equipment is 149 meters long. There will be 14,000 in two cargo compartments. tons of gravel.
