Ullapool Harbour fenders

Client: Ullapool Harbour Trust 

Contract Type: NEC3 Option A 

Lochshell Engineering were appointed as Principal Contractor by Ullapool Harbour Trust to undertake modifications to the existing pier of the harbour. The works were undertaken as part of an overall upgrade to facilitate the re-fuelling of the CalMac ferry which operates between Ullapool and Stornoway. 

The works involved the supply and fabrication of 5No new fenders which were fabricated in-house by Lochshell Engineering staff. Following fabrication, fender arrangement was grit blasted and painted to the clients’ specification before delivery. 

Lochshell Engineering were responsible for the relocation of 2No existing Trelleborg parallel motion fenders. We supplied, fabricated and installed new backing plates for the fenders which were connected to the existing walings. 

Installation of the new fenders, which included site welding and fitting in tidal conditions, relocation of existing access ladders to accommodate fender relocations and all temporary works including bespoke access systems were the responsibilities of Lochshell Engineering.
