Dover's revival receives RSS equipment

June 23 - Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has supplied lifting and rigging equipment, including a 100-tonne capacity Modulift spreader beam, to the Dover Western Docks Revival (DWDR) project in Kent, UK.

RSS supplied the equipment to VolkerBrooks (formerly Humby and Brooks), part of VolkerStevin, which is one half of the VSBW joint venture with Boskalis Westminster, responsible for delivery of the marine structures and bridge contract for the development.

As HLPFI reported here, the GBP115 million (USD 148 million) project includes the construction of two new berths, including quay walls and land reclamation; a new marina pier; the marina curve; navigation channel and new lock gates; bascule bridge and capital dredging work. VSBW recently prepared the harbour for piling and land reclamation work.

In addition to the MOD 70H spreader beam, RSS supplied lever hoists, fibre slings, chain blocks, man baskets and shackles to complete the order.
