Offload of the linkspan for george leslie

The Malin Abram team were sub-contracted by George Leslie to manage and oversee the offload of the Kennacraig Linkspan, which was transported from Fairlie to Westway via barge on the Cart river.

Our client had a very tight window to prepare, which necessitated a very responsive service. Prior to the linkspan arrival at Westway, George Leslie requested Malin to provide engineering support to supply a seafastening plan and calculations for the passage of river transport of the linkspan on the barge from Fairlie to Westway. The team were also contracted to supply cranage to the quayside to offload the linkspan from the barge, which was brought up the river Cart by George Leslie. This also provided a challenge owing to restrictions in space at the quayside.


Despite the aforementioned challenges, the cargo was successfully offloaded at the quayside before being moved, by trailer to G2 for refurbishment.

You can read more on this scope in the detailed case study below.
