August 2023

Working from a barge WM Plant have been using their CAT374 23.5m long reach fitted with orange peel grab and a multi-processor to help demolish and remove an 1899 coal hulk, the SS Portugal, that sunk in 1953 to a depth of 7m, near the navigation channel of Stornoway harbour. Removing or reducing the ships remains has helped facilitate the construction of the future deep-water port, allowing dredging to create the water depths needed by large vessels.
