Split Hopper-Nareel


APT Global Dubai was awarded a contract for the construction and delivery of 2 split hopper barges with a capacity of 2100 M³ for NMDC in June 2019.

Due to time and market constraints, APT Global Marine Service bought two available hulls, in concert with the client. The hulls were towed to her yard where they were subject of the entire outfitting, component installation, Classification and commissioning.
