Carrying over 3 million passengers each year, Gosport Ferry has been bridging the gap between Portsmouth and Gosport since 1875, offering an alternative to the 14-mile journey by road.
With that many passengers, constant use and an exposed location maintenance is going to be a regular occurrence. As a result in April we supplied over 330 sqm of pontoon for work platform allowing access to the underside of the terminal gangway.
Launching and installing the pontoons proved to be something of a logistical issue, launching near to the terminal proved impossible with no access for heavy haulage. As a result the pontoons were delivered to Haslar Marina Slipway and launched onto the water. Utilising a rib supplied by our sister company Solent Rib Charter we then towed the pontoons round to the terminal ready for install.
Our fleet of ribs adds a valuable string to our bow when it comes to installing in difficult coastal locations. If we can help you with any similar work then get in touch via the website or by phone – 01590 607104.
