The pontoon system comprises a 58m x 4m pontoon and a 27m x 4m pontoon, both with one metre freeboard to match that of the vessels, creating a berthing facility for crew transfer vessels (CTVs) serving the new wind farm which is situated 15.5 kilometres of the coast of Fife. With a capacity for displacement vessels up to 140 tonnes, both pontoons are connected to the shore via 28m x 1.5m access bridges and are with topped with GRP decking suitable for commercial application offering excellent anti-slip properties, ICMS said.

“We installed NNG’s new pontoons in the busy harbour basin, on the marine side, during the build phase of the O&M building, which meant working closely with multiple contractors to ensure the project was completed safely and on time,” says Calum MacDougall, Engineering Sales Manager at ICMS. “We’ve been delighted to be involved with a project that will bring long lasting benefits to the local community, businesses and the economy.”
