Leask Marine successfully complete decommissioning of Ola Pier linkspan
Published on April 29 2019
Leask Marine have recently completed the decommissioning of the redundant 160 tonne Ola Pier linkspan as part of the redevelopment at Scrabster Harbour, Caithness.
The project included the preparation works of dismantling of the linkspan ramp from the existing pier, placing in temporary support beams to the linkspan prior to the cutting works, removal of the tar from the linkspan road surface, cutting and dismantling the support towers and cutting the actual linkspan into firstly pieces which could be lifted using a 350 tonne crane and then once on the pier cut into transportable pieces. These sections were lifted onto lorries for onward transportation for 100% environmental scrappage. The tar which was removed was also recycled.
Sandy Bremner, Leask Marine’s project civil engineer said “This was a great project for the civil engineering team and brought together the strengths of the full Leask Marine contracting resources”
