Safe mooring on Scottish island
UK: Leisure and commercial vessels can at last dock safely in the heart of the historic harbour at Tobermory, the capital of Mull in the Scottish Inner Hebrides, thanks to a pontoon system installed by Inland & Coastal Marina Systems (ICMS).
ICMS, the successful tenderer for ‘Phase 6’ – a project devised by the Tobermory Harbour Authority to create all-weather berthing – was pressed into action to supply a first phase late in 2018 when funds, that had to be spent before April 2019, became available. Four new wave-breaking pontoons were manufactured and installed.
“Inland and Coastal pulled out all the stops to deliver a small part of our full Phase 6 project, on time and on budget,” said Tobermory Harbour chairman Brian Swinbanks, who described what he calls ‘Phase 6.1’ as a superb harbour asset. “Most of the town watched the assembled sections being towed from Ireland to Tobermory live on AIS. It was very exciting for lovers of marinas, pontoons and harbours!” he added.
