PROVIDING ACCESS FOR MAINTENANCE OF A JETTY AT IMMINGHAM HIT

The Port of Immingham is the UK's largest port by tonnage with dry bulk cargoes using the state-of-the-art Humber International Terminals (HIT) which can handle up to 20 million tonnes of coal a year. HIT also handles large volumes of biomass, animal feed, roadsalt and grain.

An integral part of HIT are its jetties and when they require maintenance or repair to their electrical or mechanical works, specialist access is required.

PMC Scaffold and Access where contracted by LECTC who were carrying out electrical and mechanical maintenance on one of the jetties and required access underneath the jetty. The tidal nature of the Humber Estuary meant that working conditions were difficult with the scaffold being partially submerged during high tide.

With our experience working in a marine environment we were able to provide a suspended scaffold that gave LECTEC's engineers the safe access they required to carry out the fit out and repairs.
