Sediment Sampling at An Daingean Fishery Harbour Centre

#shipowners – The Department of Transport, Tourism and Sport has been advised that Site Investigation works will commence at An Daingean Fishery Harbour Centre, Co. Kerry, weather permitting, on or around 19th August 2014. The works will involve sediment sampling/analysis and ground investigation works in the eastern basin.

The works are being advanced by a site investigation crew working from a Pontoon using engineering plant and machinery and work vessels.

For safety reasons, mariners are requested to proceed slowly and with caution in the approach to the eastern basin of the Fishery Harbour Centre and to give the site investigation works a wide berth. Wave-wash from vessels should be avoided.

These works are expected to be on-going until the end of August 2014, weather permitting.
