FENDER SYSTEM INSTALLATION
New Fender Installation in Support of Northern Line Extension Project
Thamescraft were contracted to assemble, mobilise and install a floating pipe fender system on behalf of Team FLO (Ferrovial Agroman + Laing O’rourke) – as part of the Northern Line extension project.
The pipe line was delivered in sections to our yard in Greenwich, where it was then craned into one of our floating dry docks to be assembled.
Once assembled, the pipe line was towed up the river to Battersea by our tug “Devious”.
We then mobilised our multi-cat “Devour” along with eight 2-ton pre-fabricated fixing brackets on her deck. She then utilised her 62t/m deck crane to lift the brackets into place. The pipe line was then connected to the brackets.
Additionally, two access platforms were also installed.
