FLOATING FACTORY

The authors describe an innovative approach for constructing concrete immersed tubes in flotation by using their considerable buoyancy in conjunction with a submersible pontoon as a base for the initial stage of construction. The proposed method is cost effective and has significant environmental advantages when compared to conventional methods of fabricating concrete or steel tubes.
