Delivered to a delighted key client as part of Herm Island’s long term investment in its infrastructure, Geomarine recently completed the latest phase of the sewerage network upgrade and the substructure for a new waste transfer station. Working within the unique and beautiful environment that is Herm, a new 4m deep pumping station, screening building and 800m long marine outfall made up the lion’s share of the project.
Tim Kaines led a team that dealt with all that offshore tidal work in January and February could throw at them! The most challenging section of the project involved the excavation and laying of 400m length of the marine outfall with the team working tidal shifts day and night to maximise the short window of opportunity on every available low tide.
On time and within budget this vital part of Herm’s infrastructure was on-line for the start of the busy tourist season.
Tim paid tribute to his team, “The project was made possible by a tenacious can-do attitude from our guys, a close working relationship with the client and a sizeable supply of dry waders for the tidal shifts.”
