Working together - spotlight
Spring last year, working alongside the main contractor P&D Environmental, saw Inland and Coastal Marina Systems deliver its heavy-duty pontoon system to the Fish Quay. The company’s extensive experience working with ports and harbour operators enabled the design of a bespoke solution that fitted within, and utilised, the existing infrastructure and assets.
Equipped with a 150mm rubber D-fender, the 90 metre by 3 metre pontoon boasts patented composite concrete decking providing a strong, anti-slip, surface and stable berthing facilities in the busy mixed-use commercial quay.
“The installation window was tight, with minimum disruption being key to delivering the project successfully. The P&D Environmental team worked closely with Inland and Coastal’s design and site team to ensure the system was installed with minimal impact on the quay’s daily business,” says Ben Jones, Contracts Director at P&D Environmental.
Fishco General Manager, Simon Peacock commented, “We run a busy, successful operation. It was vital that both our supplier and contractor worked hand in hand to ensure that they delivered a high-quality system with the minimum impact on our day to day operations. This worked well and we are really pleased with the result. The project was run smoothly and efficiently, and communication was second to none throughout the works. We would happily recommend them for further works.’’
A year on and existing vessel operators continue to make good use of the new robust facility, and by extending the range of the craft now able to operate from the quay, new revenue sources are also being generated.
