This month we were delighted to welcome a new truck to our fleet of specialist vehicles. The 80 tonne DAF tractor unit was quickly put to work with its first project being the moving of a refurbished passenger link back to its home at Dover Docks.
The 46m main span passenger link shown was one of 18 No sections of steelwork, including ramps, link spans and supporting steelwork, which were dismantled on site at Dover Docks and transported to our works for full refurbishment. Together with a new 9m Brow, the newly refurbished components were then delivered back to the docks and reinstalled ready for use.
Following the success of the works at Berth 2, further works on the refurbishment Berth 7 at Dover will commence in Spring 2015.
