Warning to Hong Kong harbour with unloading of precast units off Wan Chai

HONG Kong's Marine Department has warned vessels to exercise caution while navigating in the vicinity of the new Wanchai Pier where round-the-clock work will be carried out to unload precast units from a semi-submersible barge for about nine days.

The co-ordinates of the areas affected are: 22 deg. 17.456'N/114 deg. 10.765'E; 22 deg. 17.308'N/114 deg. 10.810'E; 22 deg. 17.208'N/114 deg. 10.596'E and 22 deg. 17.343'N/114 deg. 10.523'E, according to Hot Port News.

The unloading operation will be carried out from a flotilla of vessels including one semi-submersible barge, two crane barges, some tug boats and guard boats. The number of vessels engaged in the operation will change from time to time to suit operational requirements, the department said.

A working area of 50 metres around each barge will be established and yellow marker buoys fitted with yellow flashing lights will be laid to mark the positions of the anchors extending from the barges.

The precast units unloaded from the semi-submersible barge at the working area will be towed to the west of the New Wan Chai Ferry Pier for seawall construction. Diving operations will be carried out during the hours of works and vessels engaged in the operations will display signals as prescribed in international and local regulations.

The department warned that vessels navigating in the vicinity should proceed with caution and keep clear at slow speed, bearing in mind there are divers working in the area.
