Wicklow Based Tug Supports Dredging Project at UK Windfarm

21st August 2017

#ports&shipping  - Wicklow based Alpha Marine are carrying out a dredging project off the UK south coast for an offshore windfarm project, writes Jehan Ashmore.

The vessel support and marine services company deployed the Husky, a twin screw shallow draft tug to conduct nearshore dredging support at the Rampion Offshore Windfarm.

Among the marine engineering plant involved in the project off the Sussex coast has been the ‘Spud’ barge Beluga. The vessel has been manoeuvred by Husky out of Shoreham Harbour which is a base for such operations. 

This has involved the dredging spread for the excavation and backfill of the trench for the export cable leading from the Rampion Offshore Windfarm.
