Wave Hub Aids to Navigation

Please be advised that vessel THV Galatea is scheduled to carry out the annual navigation mark maintenance at the Wave Hub offshore site on 16/17 August 2019 or as soon as possible thereafter as weather permits. The works are estimated to take 2 days and a further notice will be issued when the scheduled maintenance is complete.

It is also respectfully requested that deployed fishing gear is kept at least 250m away from Wave Hub Aids to Navigation.
