ADBP Appointed Lead Consultant on Peel Marina Remedial Dredging
Anthony D Bates Partnership (ADBP)
has been appointed as Lead Consultant on Peel Marina development by The Isle Of
Man Department of Infrastructure. The project involves the removal of
approximately 44,000 tonnes of environmentally problematic silt and sand from
Peel Marina on the west coast of the island. Dredging will restore the
impounded depths within the marina and avoid the potential closure of a number
of berths; which were last dredged in 2015.
Once dredged, the material will be transported to a bespoke earthen dewatering area, constructed near the marina to allow the sediment to dry over several months. Subsequently, it will be ready for additional transport and placement, including potential beneficial reuse if identified.
As the lead consultants for the project, ADBP have been appointed to advise the client and manage the various project teams throughout all stages of the project, including: initial site investigations, design, planning approvals, consents, construction, through to total completion and reinstatement. ADBP have also been appointed to conduct the Environmental Impact Assessment for the project.
The project is ongoing and is currently expect to be conducted in multiple stages over a 3 year period.
