New Floating Bridge update

On  3 February 2016 the contract to build the replacement bridge was awarded to Mainstay Marine Solutions Limited (MMSL) who are based at Pembroke Dock, Wales. Whilst the programme to build, test and commission the replacement bridge is very challenging MMSL have already demonstrated their commitment to delivering a high quality vessel both on time and within budget.

The photographs were taken during a routine project update meeting on 12 April; they show the centre section of the bridge – which will contain the new engine room – as well as one of the chain troughs. At this point there is approximately 120 tonnes of steel which have bene cut and welded.
