Great Yarmouth Harbour

OVERVIEW

The harbour is strategically located to serve the Oil and Gas fields of the southern North Sea and the planned Offshore Wind development off the UK East Coast.

Great Yarmouth harbour offers the shortest North Sea crossing between Great Britain and continental Europe.

CHALLENGES

Removal of fender blocks and surrounding slabs on the North Terminal outer harbour, using a combination of diamond stitch drilling, diamond track sawing and wire sawing technologies. The weather became extremely challenging, open to the elements often exposed to high winds and aggressive waves.

We adopted dry cutting methodology preventing contaminants entering the water, often overlooked by the resident Atlantic Grey Seals.

ACHIEVEMENTS

Exploring and trialling successful new wire sawing technologies from the safety of the quay side. Sped up delivery to complete within time scale provided.
