Further to Marine Notice No 25 of 2022, Van Oord Ireland is due to commence installation of a 927m long pipeline as part of the Arklow Long Sea Outfall project.

The installation works were set to commence today, Monday 20 June and are expected to continue until early August. All operations are weather dependent.

During operations, three HDPE pipelines, each 309m in length, will be moored off alongside the North Quay at the Port of Arklow. During pipe installation works, the harbour entrance will have limited availability to other traffic for around 72 hours from earlier today.

The operations will be conducted by a number of vessels, including the backhoe dredger Razende Bol (callsign PFSD), shoal buster AMS Retriever (callsign MEHI8), tug Husky (callsign 2EQI7), landing craft Ros Aine (callsign EI-2G-5) and multicat Fastnet Sound (callsign MHXQ5).

Coordinates and a map of the working area, as well as contact information, can be found in Marine Notice No 39 of 2022 attached below.
