Humber Work Boats Latest News

Successful year ends with a bang!
A busy 2016 for marine and dredging contractors Humber Work Boats Limited culminated in the company supplying the two vessels from which the Hull UK City of Culture 2017 New Year's Day In With a Bang firework event were set off from.

Early 2016 saw the North Killingholme Haven based business transport its Cutter Suction Dredger to Scotland in order to undertake six weeks of capital dredging work at Largs Yacht Haven, in order to deepen one of Scotland's top marinas, enabling it to accept a greater number of larger yachts.

After a summer sabbatical, the dredger was then transported to Amble Marina, Northumberland, where it spent a further four weeks carrying out a maintenance dredge, removing over 5 years' worth of silt accumulation in the marina basin. This project involved the launching of a one kilometre discharge pipeline into the North Sea with the assistance of the crane barge Rebecca M.

Other vessels within the fleet were kept busy working solely on the River Humber throughout the year, including a number of smaller projects assisting the main contractor at Green Port Hull, the ABP and Siemens development.

The business also continues to supply and manage the crew of the backhoe dredger Pat M for its new owners in Venezuela.

2017 looks set to be another busy year with many orders and enquiries coming through already for both local and national work.
