For many years, VBMS has been a forerunner in the construction and installation of marine outfalls and water intakes. We cover virtually all marine outfall activities, including (but not limited to) in-house design, engineering, construction and project management. Our proposal may include a combination of techniques including horizontal directional drilling, micro-tunnelling, 'float and sink' method or bottom pull.
Our projects have brought us to some of Europe's most challenging environments. We designed and constructed an outfall pipeline in harsh conditions off the coast of Ireland. In addition, we engineered an innovative and eco-conscious "Capital Cooling System" to transport cold water into Amsterdam to cool buildings. We also installed one of the largest outfalls in the Mediterranean Sea, which spans over 3.4 kilometres (2.1 miles).
