    Underwater welding International Ferry Port in Portsmouth

    MMC Divers complete the underwater welding of 69 anode on the berth 2 finger for the International Ferry Port, works also included underwater broco burning off the 17 number old anodes.

UNDERWATER WELDING INTERNATIONAL FERRY PORT IN PORTSMOUTH.

Client: Portsmouth International Ferry Port

Contractor: MMC Diving Services

Duration: 4 weeks

Date posted: 11-03-2022

MMC Diving Services were awarded the tender to complete the installation of 69 anodes weighing approximately 80 kilos each. These works were part of the cathodic protection following the new quayside extension to berth 2 which was extended by 40m and had a further freestanding 'dolphin' mooring structure added. This new berth now enables the port to receive ships of up to 255m in length opening up more of the cruise market for the city of Portsmouth.

MMC's team consisted of underwater coded welders, burners and rope access technicians to install the anode test stations, our cross trained coded welder divers, IRATA access teams and telly handler operatives meant we could utilise our one inhouse team to move the anodes around the quayside, saving time, resources and money for our client.

Despite being stood down due to berthing requirements throughout the works, this project was completed ahead of schedule which enabled the berth to open up earlier than planned.
