Smalley Dredger


Phase 2

Drake Towage Ltd originally installed phase 1 of the marina in 2016, using a floating pontoon system designed and manfactured by Intermarine Ltd based near Southampton. Phase 2 was an extension to the original phase 1.

As part of the design for the installation, 506mm diameter x 12m long tubular piles were used. These were driven and then extended using a 6m long sections that were then welded on top making a combined pile length of 18m. The joined pile was then driven again down to set level before moving onto the next pile location.

The mooring pontoons were assembled bankside, then lifted into the river and joined to the newly installed piles. Once connected, cleats and services etc. were then installed.
