Valiant Jetty

The bridge linking the new concrete jetty to the shore was lifted into place on Thursday afternoon. It was built by the Ferguson Group at Newark Shipyard, Port Glasgow, and lifted aboard TAKLIFT 7 on Wednesday afternoon. After spending that night in the Great Harbour, TAKLIFT 7 moved to Faslane, accompanied as usual by EERLAND 26, and passed through the barrier surrounding the submarine berths. The structure weighs in the region of 500 tonnes.

The building to the left of the Taklift is a newbuilding obviously for the administration of the Jetty and is still under completion - quite a feat of installation by the Dutch, but, as usual, no fanfares - just get on with the job!
