RSS Provides Lifting and Rigging Equipment to DWDR Project

Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has supplied lifting and rigging equipment to the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) project on the Kent, UK coast.

RSS supplied the equipment to VolkerBrooks, part of VolkerStevin, which is one half of the VSBW joint venture with Boskalis Westminster, responsible for delivery of the marine structures and bridge contract for the landmark development.

With a contract value of £115 million, the construction stage will include the design and build of two new berths, including quay walls and land reclamation; a new marina pier; the marina curve; navigation channel and new lock gates; bascule bridge and capital dredging work. VSBW recently prepared the harbor for piling and land reclamation work.

Upon completion, DWDR will give Dover a transformed waterfront with a new marina pier and curve to attract a host of shops, bars, cafes and restaurants with the unique backdrop of the harbor, cliffs and castle. A new cargo terminal and distribution center will support the relocation and further development of Dover’s cargo business.

The DWDR project will also create greater space within the Eastern Docks for ferry traffic and employment opportunities.
