Lochshell Engineering were appointed in May 2018 by Argyll & Bute Council to be the Principal Contractor for the design, manufacture and installation of a new scour baffle screen and bracing system at the existing ferry terminal in Rothesay, Isle of Bute.
Rothesay ferry terminal, Isle of Bute, is a busy ferry terminal, fish quay and harbour which also provides pontoon moorings for pleasure craft. An overnight berth is provided on a separate pier adjacent to the ferry berth for the roll-on roll-off ferry. The ferry operates from a linkspan berth which impaired the area where the scour baffle was installed.
The new scour baffle screen was commissioned by Lochshell Engineering to protect the long-term integrity of the quay wall at Rothesay. The new screen has minimised the effects of the propeller wash which affected the masonry quay wall located beneath and to the rear of the suspended deck of the ferry berth.
The majority of site works was carried out during the night to minimise disruption to the ferry services and other harbour users.
Lochshell engineering has successfully completed the installation of the new scour baffle screen. The works involved the following:
