The first use of NESB’s modular NATO pontoon. NESB were tasked to provide marine support for thruster installation on the GMS Evolution at Blyth. We managed to install all the thrusters on consecutive days with no issues. The pontoons were used as a platform to install each 7.6t thruster as well as accomodating all the ancillary equipment needed for the installation such as the scissor lift and generators. A lot of companies were involved to make this happen but it’s great to see this sort of expertise and this type of work being carried out in the North East.
