It 'very important, also, that the activity of pre testing, performed in the workshop to verify the welding and the repair made, is performed very carefully on each individual module.

In that regard each structural component that contributes to the flotation of entire barge is filled with water in our workshop in order to verify that each module is perfectly watertight.
