The trellis, or upper works, on both masts have now been removed but the pile foundations are still in place, temporary navigation lights have been installed and are working on both structures.

 

The self-propelled offshore construction jack up vessel ‘WIND’ is on site and will transit between both Met Mast positions as required and as already advertised this work is expected to last for approx. 28days, depending on weather and conditions.

 

Picture and details of ‘WIND’ are on the attached NtM.

Please note that the chartlet is provided for information purposes only and should not be used for navigation.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you are unsure about any of the above, or the attached, or if you require any further information, also please pass this information to any of your colleagues who you think might be interested.

 

If you know of any fisherman who works the area and does not receive this information or anybody else who would benefit from this information please let me know.
