Red7Marine, the marine partner of choice, is proud to announce that it has secured an exciting new project to install two new large diameter mooring piles for the new Battersea Power Station river bus installation.

Red7Marine will be supplying a 400t jack up barge, the Haven-SeaSeven, and a 160t hydraulic crane, to complete the specialist piling works for Battersea Power Station. Red7Marine will ensure that the piles will be safely installed, using a bespoke system to hold the steel tube and vibrate, then hammer them into the riverbed.

Whilst the project is underway, Red7Marine will liaise closely with the PLA and local stakeholders, who regularly use the busy part of the river that Red7Marine will be working on. Red7Marine will consult with the client closely and will assign a full project management team to ensure that the work is carried out to the highest standard and completed safely.

Kristen Branford, Commercial Director at Red7Marine comments: “It is extremely exciting news for us to announce Red7Marine has won the contract for the Battersea Power Station project. Red7Marine’s strong history of safely delivering complex and challenging projects will be reflected on this project just as it was during the London Cable Car and the London Gateway projects. Red7Marine will be working closely alongside the project partner to ensure the highest standards of delivery and satisfaction are met, and we are looking forward to the work beginning.”

The barges being deployed will begin to mobilise within the New Year and the work is projected to be complete before spring of 2017.

The dedicated River Bus service from Battersea Power Station’s new river pontoon will be operational from Autumn 2017.
