Passenger Tunnel Walkway Tunnel Recovery & Removal

Herbosch Kiere MC Ltd was awarded the contract to remove a collapsed passenger walkway at the Port of Harwich, Essex.

Work involved the placing of new “pad eyes” on the existing structure to provide secure lifting of the units. All of the glass panels of the tunnel were secured to prevent them from cracking or coming loose from the structure during the lift and some of the existing steel work was cut away to prevent any possible fouling. The area was then prepared for the arrival of the barge “Wassland” with the American 11320 crane.
