More Supplies Unloaded for Projects

BACK TO NEWS LINKS

 

Friday 22nd  April Approximately 95 tons of cargo was unloaded from the Southern Salvor today. But the weather had much to play in the success of the day. A southerly wind mean Bounty Bay was in the lee of the Island and sea conditions glass clear.

Amongst the materials unloaded were 95 eight meter (22 foot) lengths steel  piles each weighing almost half a ton. Approximately 16 tons of the 40 tons of cement was unloaded as well. Three days had been allocated just to unload the sheet piles alone, so "we are well ahead of schedule" says one worker.

A bulldozer and a rock crusher are amongst some heavy equipment waiting to be unloaded.
