CTSC Dollos

CTSC Dollos

We were tasked to assist the Cape Town Science Center with a very interesting project.

Summit Crane Hire was tasked with the move of a Dollos to the Cape Town Science Center so that it could be put on display. 

This is to aid in the teaching of coastal waters, and coastal management.

What is a Dollos ?

dolos (plural: dolosse) is a reinforced concrete block in a complex geometric shape weighing up to 80 tonnes (88 short tons), used in great numbers as a form of coastal management to build revetments for protection against the erosive force of waves from a body of water.[1] The dolos was invented in 1963 by South African harbour draughtsman Aubrey Kruger, and was first deployed in 1964 on the breakwater of East London, a South African port city.
