Loch Ryan Jetty Repairs

Repairs to Loch Ryan Jetty which was damaged when a Stena Line Ferry struck a fender while docking during high winds.

Works involved the removal of the damaged section of concrete upstand and deck using diamond wire cutting and hydrodemolition, as well as the damaged pile at seabed level.

A new fender sleeve was installed with two new driven piles, before the concrete deck was reinstated and the fender reinstalled.

All works were carried out between daily sailings of the Stena Line Cairnryan to Belfast sailings.

Feature of ProjectConstrained Site

Works on the jetty were highly constrained, taking place within an 18m wide jetty with space further restricted by an overhead pedestrian walkway and associated support structure, quay furniture and load restrictions placed on the damaged area of deck. Certain works had to cease 30 minutes before each ferry berthed and access for Stena staff to the jetty maintained at all times.
