 BAM Nuttal where appointed as principal contractor for the construction of the £9.2 million pier plan for Stromness harbour Orkney. The Copland’s Dock development consisted of constructing a new 100-metre pier and associated access road in Stromness. The new facility was required to service the marine renewables sector which is thriving in the Orkney Islands.

 

A combination of both the projects geographic location and time of year required Foyle & Marine Dredging to illustrate alternative mobilisation methods. The spud-leg dredger Aoibheanne was completely dismantled at Campbeltown harbour via a 500T mobile crane and each section was placed on a ship for transport to the Orkney Islands where the dredger was reassembled via two 250T cranes.

 

The dredging and disposal operation was carried out with the spud leg dredger Aoibheanne (14M dredger Depth), tug Tregeagle and 2 X 550m³ split hopper barges.

The dredge areas consisted of 18,500M³ of soft material and 2500M³ of rock which had to be broken and extracted. The Rock was broken out with a G130 Rammer rock breaking hammer (9T). All the marine material was disposed of at the designated disposal site approximately 5NM from Stromness harbour.

To achieve complete sign off , the contracted conducted a detailed multi beam survey or the dredge area to ensure the dredge design depth was achieved.
