Contract win for Red7Marine
By Ian Vallely22 December 2016
Red7Marine has secured a project to install two new large diameter mooring piles for the new Battersea Power Station river bus installation in London, United Kingdom.
Red7Marine will supply a 400 tonne jack up barge, the Haven-SeaSeven, and a 160 tonne capacity hydraulic crane, to complete the specialist piling works for the Battersea Power Station development.
Kristen Branford, commercial director at Red7Marine, said, “It is extremely exciting news for us to announce Red7Marine has won the contract for the Battersea Power Station project. Red7Marine’s strong history of safely delivering complex and challenging projects will be reflected on this project just as it was during the London Cable Car and the London Gateway projects.
“Red7Marine will be working closely alongside the project partner to ensure the highest standards of delivery and satisfaction are met, and we are looking forward to the work beginning.”
The barges being deployed mobilise in the New Year and the work is projected to be complete by the second quarter of 2017.
The dedicated River Bus service from Battersea Power Station’s new river pontoon will be operational later in the year.
