Gael Force Group managed the specification, sourcing and delivery of mooring equipment for a new anchoring system installation at Kishorn.

It accommodates and secures the large concrete caisson gates of the port’s dry dock facility with moorings designed to allow the gates to be safely secured while the dry dock is open.

Gael Force also oversaw the installation of the equipment, selecting Green Marine Energy Services of Orkney to carry out deployment and positioning of the hardware in Loch Kishorn.

The two dry dock gates are of a considerable size, each measuring 83m in length and weighing 11,000 tonnes when floated.

The dock is believed to be among one of the largest in the world.

Alasdair Ferguson, a director of the port, said: “We are delighted with the work undertaken by Gael Force.”
