A split barge is made up of two halves, which can turn around each other on hinges. The hinges on both halves are connected with hydraulic cylinders. When unlocking these two halves, starboard and port side, the vessel splits in longitudinal direction and the load will be dumped automatically due to the construction of the hull. Once the load is discharged, the hull shape/construction also forces the two halves to join again and the hydraulic cylinders are retracted.
