SUPPORT FOR JT MACKLEY ON TEAM 2100 PROJECT
Thamescraft recently supported JT Mackley with marine support during their works on the Thames 2100 project.
JT Mackley were contracted by Balfour Beatty to carry out repairs to the river wall as part of the TEAM2100 flood defence project. The works included excavating the foreshore and installing 30m of sheet piling in front of the river wall, as well as timber fender repairs, and placement of 52 Kyowa rock filter bags.
Thamescraft were able to offer a one stop shop for Mackleys, providing them with our largest multicat “Devour”, a safety boat, and usage of the yard in Greenwich, to load various equipment.
The “Devour” was carefully positioned on each tide using two 3ton anchors to hold her across the tide while the vessel was grounded. Once the tide had left the shore, the Devour’s crew would unload Mackleys equipment onto the shore for them to carry out their works.
Once the piling works were completed 52 Kyowa bags were delivered to Thamescraft’s yard, where they were unloaded from lorries using our tower crane, and then loaded straight onto the deck of the “Devour” to be delivered to site.
The works were very successful and finished ahead of schedule.
