Harbour News 14 June 2018

Dredging works at the harbour are progressing very well , showing extremely positive results.  A final survey of the dredged areas will be conducted prior to completion of the job. Looking back on our old records the dredger Shearwater removed sand from River Harbour Approach channel in 2008.  The Shearwater used a suction system to remove sand whereas the Admiral Day uses bucket and grab method.

5 CTVs are now operating from the port servicing the Beatrice Offshore Windfarm namely – Seacat Intrepid, Dalby Aire, Rix Panther, Rix Lion and Rix Cheetah. An additional vessel the Marineco Mariah is due to join this fleet shortly.
