Earlier this week, Sorensen Civil Engineering’s Sumitomo 160 tonne crawler crane was getting ready for its maiden voyage on the Wilcarry Barge.

According to the Sorensen’s latest project update, “huge planning and preparation has been put in by our site team to allow works to commence on the breakwater cells later this month, the majority of which will be constructed from the barge.”

Also, works are ongoing with the quay wall extension as well as Foyle & Marine’s EX1200-6 Grizzly progressing well with dredging operations.
