Thanckes Jetty Project Includes Dredging

VolkerStevin recently won a £43 million contract to build new jetty at Thanckes Oil Fuel Depot which provides fueling facilities for the Royal Navy at Devonport Naval Base.

The project will deliver a new jetty with fuel loading and fire fighting facilities; the fire fighting facilities within the depot will also be replaced.

According to VolkerStevin, the jetty will be constructed within a Special Area of Conservation on the River Tamar and the project has to comply with stringent environmental regulations.

The dredging and clearing works are due to begin in January 2018 with the main piling works starting in September 2018 to avoid the annual fish migration season.

The new jetty is due to be in service by November 2019. The Thanckes Jetty is the first in a number of projects to modernize the Oil Fuel Depots in Devonport and Portsmouth to service the fueling of the Naval Fleet in both ports.
