HMT Scope of Work

Maintenance dredging in the Hamburg Harbour was among the first applications for the HMT system. For this purpose a rating method was developed, using the achieved load density as an arbitrary figure.

Within a bonus-malus system a high density corresponds to a high value of the load.
