Mariners are advised of an updated schedule of work with regard to
hydrographic and topographic surveys of Caledonian Maritime Assets Ltd
port areas being undertaken by their contractor Aspect Land &
Hydrographic Surveys Ltd.
During a 3-week period commencing Monday 21 May 2012, Aspect Land & Hydrographic Surveys Ltd will continue a detailed bathymetric survey of the seabed at the pier, approach channels and adjacent shorelines at the undernoted ferry terminals and slipways in the Isle of Mull and Ardnamurchan areas utilising a purpose built survey vessel, Marine Sensor, a road transportable white hulled Cheetah catamaran with enclosed cabin. It will be crewed by two persons and will maintain a watch on VHF Channel 16 at all times.
Surveys will be conducted between the hours of 0830hrs and 1730hrs and will cause no disruption to ferry services.
It should be noted that due to weather constraints indicative schedules of work are not definitive and require a degree of flexibility. Therefore vessels navigating in the vicinity of any of the terminals and slipways listed below should do so with care and maintain a lookout for the abovementioned survey vessel, regulating their speed to minimise the effects of wash accordingly.
An indicative schedule with proposed site start dates for three weeks commencing Monday 21 May 2012 is listed below.
