Ashleigh Contracts has just released this beautiful photo of their rock dredging work at Greenore Port, Co. Louth.
This small port had to be kept operational throughout this contract and Ashleigh worked round vessel delivery/discharges.
“All rock was broken out by our CAT395 (21m reach) onboard the barge then sidecast to the seabed adjacent the quay wall and recovered by our quayside Hitachi ZX650 (25m reach),” said the company.
Greenore Port is Ireland’s only privately owned port. It is owned by the Doyle Shipping Group which has operations in all of Ireland’s major ports and provides terminal management, stevedoring and other services.
The Port provides marine and logistical support services across a wide range of industries such as agri-feed, construction, renewable energy, livestock exports and manufacturing.
