Due to ongoing works in the Dover Western Dock Revival Project, new berths were required to be provided for the dredger and tugs, whose operatives will benefit from having a safe 24/7 berth. The wider port stakeholders and users will also benefit from having these vessels available when required.

We have installed a 137.55 metre-wide floating concrete pontoon, which incorporates a one-metre freeboard for the purposes of berthing the David Church Dredger and the tugs Dauntless and Doughty. The scope of work also included the supply of floating fenders and M&E services.
Weighing in at almost 100 tonnes, the breakwaters are the heaviest to date that we have constructed. For the logistics of delivering the units to site, we opted for delivery by Charter Ship and the units were off loaded using an 800-tonne crane in the Cargo facility at Port of Dover. Logistics partners included Whitten Road Haulage, Doyle Shipping Group, Baldwin Crane Hire and Dover Port Cargo Team who all played a crucial role in the safe and efficient delivery of the units.
