Project Neptune Quay - Bringing Deepwater Reserves Closer
Bridon Neptune Quay represents the pinnacle of a fully
integrated, strategic investment project, that will positively
impact beyond this facility to enhance our already extensive
capacities and capabilities globally.
Project challenges included timely liaison for quayside
remediation, foundation work on a massive scale and a
specialist dual lift to handle the 65 tonne closer capstans,
involving two cranes of 40 tonnes capacity. With support
from the ‘Regional Growth Fund’, advanced equipment
suppliers and other carefully selected service partners,
Bridon’s professional project management team are
successfully delivering the most technologically advanced
rope making facility & service centre in the World.
