Jenkins Marine has been working for Weymouth Harbor commissioners and the Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) to undertake maintenance dredging within Weymouth harbor, the company said in their latest announcement.
Dredging has been requested for various areas including under the all-weather lifeboat berth where the existing mooring pontoon is currently removed for maintenance works.
The self-propelled spud leg pontoon utility vessel Doreen Dorward led operations with the assistance of split hopper barges NAB and Needles which were used to transport the spoil to the Swanage disposal site.
Commenting the latest news, Keith Howorth, Weymouth Harbor Master, said: “Many thanks to you and your team for a great job here in Weymouth this week. It was a pleasure to work with your team who were professional, cooperative and understanding of our harbor and it’s users.”
According to an official statement, the dredging vessels attracted quite a crowd whilst filling the main navigational channel and dredging in close proximity to the historic lifting bridge. Close co-operation was required with the local harbor authority and other harbor users.
