TMS have returned to Wear Farm over the last couple of weeks to assist Balfour Beatty with the installation of a new surface water drainage pipe, TMS have extracted the cofferdam from the estuary using specialist marine equipment. Further remedial works are due to commence in the near future.

Wear Farm Cofferdam

TMS have been working locally installing a cofferdam at Wear Farm Railway line. We have installed 90 piles to create the culvert, frames inside the cofferdam were installed to add extra strength to allow the work to be carried out safely, this will enable Balfour Beatty to repair the collapsed pipe under the track. TMS used our safety boat ‘Petrel’ to push the two barges ‘Ash’ & ‘Bond’

Toft Pier, Shetland

TMS have completed the first stage of the works on Toft Pier this week. The Piles have been installed encapsulating the existing old pier, After this section is filled with stone, the crane will move further out to start piling the pier extension. The photos below show us closing off this stage with the anchor wall.

St Blazey Railway Embankment

TMS were instructed by Balfour Beatty to complete emergency works last week on St Blazey Railway Embankment. 

Due to the recent bad weather the river bank was being washed out which had caused the adjacent railway line to be closed as a precautionary measure.

Working in a mature fashion in direct collaboration with Balfour Beatty, TMS employed continuous working to perform these essential repairs as quickly as possible. Within 24 hours a piling rig was mobilised to site and within a further 72 hours approximately 70 tonnes of tied sheet piles were installed to level. Balfour Beatty then completed the track reinstatement works and the railway was re-opened.




Toft Pier

TMS are in the Shetland Islands working on Toft Pier development & the weather has been testing us, but the sixth pile gate has now been set up on the seaward side.
Now that the piles are complete in the first section, stone fill is being stockpiled ready to be placed at low tide. All of the stone has been locally sourced EMN Quarry. The long reach excavator on TMS’ Modular Pontoon, Sinbad can be seen in the foreground placing fill to the seabed after excavating to remove an obstruction to the corner piles.
