Ullapool SI (Site Investigation)


ABCO Marine Ltd mobilised our C59 Emotion Jack-Up Barge to Ullapool, Highlands, Scotland to enable Site Investigation works at Ullapool Harbour. The investigation works were in advance of proposed extension to the existing ferry terminal berth. In order to obtain the required site information, four (4) number borehole locations had to drilled to depths 42m below existing seabed level and the required information and sampling obtained. 

Barge moves were planned and executed in a challenging environment with the Ullapool - Stornoway ferry using the adjacent berth and sailing twice daily. With barge personnel ensuring mooring lines and winch wires were kept clear so not to damage or impede ferry movements.
