Scottish Water outfall pipe project

Scottish Water carried out a £2.2 million investment project to help protect and enhance the environment of The Firth of Clyde and coastal waters in the popular tourist town of Largs.

The project involved replacing a short storm outfall pipe with a new, longer outfall pipe.

Coastworks worked alongside the principle contractor on this project. Working with George Leslie we provided Challenger and the CW-4 barge to dredge a 200m long trench off the beach. 

At the same time, the new 220m long pipe was built up at Fairlie Quay and once the trench was down to depth, Challenger, Coastworker and Coastrunner towed the pipe to site and held it into position while it was sunk down into the trench. 

Work started in February 2019 and was completed in the autumn.
