Complete NTM 40/16

Mariners are advised that during 11th and 12th May 2016 dive contractors Shearwater Marine Services Ltd will be carrying out diving works under and around the pier at Wemyss Bay as part of the ongoing upgrade works. The works will be carried out in late evening and through the night to avoid scheduled ferry services.

The dive team will be operating from the pier deck using a crane and man-rider basket.

At all times dive operation working areas will be appropriately marked using Flag A ‘Diving Operations’ and during this time the pier will be closed to all vessels.

All vessels navigating in the vicinity of Wemyss Bay Ferry Terminal are advised to exercise vigilance and pass at minimum safe manoeuvring speed and sufficient distance from the dive site to reduce the risk of damage or injury being caused by the passing vessel’s wash or displacement.
