The Armitt Group successfully managed the recent removal of two 1050 metric tonne Ship Un-Loaders from the former Tilbury power station located on the Thames, east of London.
After a lengthy planning phase, with various solutions considered, Armitt’s plan was accepted by the client.
Armitt project managed the operational communication, vessel agency and chartering, liaising closely with all parties to perform two large piece movements, overcoming any unforeseen issues as they arose.
“From the initial draft surveys of the berth, through lashing and securing systems and the engineering calculations, notwithstanding the stringent requirements for the lashing and welding teams, Armitt worked tirelessly to propose the most economic and efficient solution that met the strict criteria of the client,” said Nicholas Marshall, Commercial Director, at the Armitt Group.
“The SPMT equipment was supplied by Mammoet and worked efficiently with both machines clearing the ground pretty much as expected, with the water bags only required for one of the lifts.”
