Friars Bay Long Sea Outfall Pipe

Finance 1.jpg

The pipe was towed from Norway in four sections to Shoreham Port. The pipeline was towed into the Canal over the land on the south side of the Prince Philip Lock. During the following 6 week period, eight hundred 1.8m diameter concrete collars were slid over the plastic pipe and all sections were joined together and towed to Peacehaven.


Shoreham Port Pipe Assemble by Diensen Pamben-6.jpgIt was a unique operation as both lock gates had to be open at the same time. This meant that a spring high tide was required so there was level water both inside and outside the port locks. The whole operation had a tidal window of just 60 minutes. With the expertise of the port marine and engineering staff, and Land & Marine’s team the manoeuvre ran efficiently and to plan in 57 minutes!
