SD IMPULSE and barge

On a very short tow, Serco Denholm's sullage lighter 1710 (U) was towed from the Gareloch this morning down firth by SD IMPULSE, and the pair were seen passing Cloch Point heading for Loch Striven. The lighter is used to store waste oil from naval vessels, which is then pumped ashore for processing and eventual recycling.
