Inland and Coastal Marina Systems (ICMS) has installed a new 30m pontoon for the Montrose Port Authority to service the Seagreen Offshore Wind Farm.
The new 30m x 4.4m heavy-duty pontoon will allow safe berthing and access for crew transfer vessels (CTVs) to the new operations and maintenance (O&M) base for the wind farm which is currently under construction 27km off the coast of Angus. Located on Montrose Port’s South Quay, the new pontoon is topped with GRP decking suitable for commercial application offering anti-slip properties. This, coupled with the task lighting, ensures safe working conditions for workers and CTV crews all year round, day and night, during the commissioning and ongoing maintenance phases of the offshore wind farm. Shoreside access to the new berth, and the vessels moored alongside, is via a bespoke 20m access gangway with a cantilevered shore frame platform.
