Since Friday (2nd February 2018) planned heavy lift operations at Cork Dockyard involve the loading of cargo onto the vessel ‘HHL Lagos’.

Last February, as Afloat.ie reported at the time here, the same Cork Harbour dockyard was the site selected for loading massive Liebherr cranes onto an equally massive ship bound for Puerto Rico.

Current operations with HHL Lagos will occur at multiple times, for periods of up to five hours, according to the Harbourmaster. These operations are planned to be completed within 1 (one) week.

During the lifting operations, commercial vessel traffic may be restricted from navigating in the vicinity of Cork Dockyard to facilitate safe operations. Vessels navigating in the area must contact Port of Cork Operations on VHF Channel 12 for details of any lifting operations, and associated navigation restrictions.

Once the cargo has been loaded onto the HHL Lago, this cargo shall overhang into the navigation channel.

Vessel Masters & operators are requested to pass HHL Lagos at a minimum safe speed and producing no visible wash for the duration of the HHL Lagos’s stay at Cork Dockyard.

Furthermore, vessels are requested to keep a sharp lookout for any potential overhangs and obstructions from the HHL Lagos, and to closely monitor VHF Channel 12 at all times for information updates.
