LOCH LONG - GLEN MALLAN JETTY CONSTRUCTION WORKS

                                                BA Chart 3746

1. Mariners are advised that the existing jetty and infrastructure at Glenmallan in Loch Long is approaching the end of its design life. Volkerstevin have been contracted to undertake the demolition of the existing jetty and approaches and to construct a new suspended deck jetty in its place. The works will commence on Tuesday 27th August 2019 and will last until 2nd February 2021.

2. Works will include piling, marine construction and diving. Vessels will include crane barges, supply barges, multi-cat work boats and a safety boat. All vessels associated with the works will display appropriate signals as required by the International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea.

3. An exclusion zone will be in place for the duration of the works, marking the Marine Works Area of Operation. This is to facilitate the mooring of barges and anchor locations from winch wires on the crane barges. Due to the depth of water at the project location it is envisaged that the crane barge winch wires will extend 250-300m from the crane barge installation locations. Below British Admiralty Chart 3746 extract shows the exclusion which will be in force for the duration of the works.

 

4. Whilst the vessels remain within the operational and associated areas, they will maintain a listening watch on VHF Channels 12,16 and 73.

5. Mariners are to keep clear of the exclusion zone and reduce wash adjacent to the works. MOD Police will monitor activity in the area.
