Wave Hub Aids to Navigation – 2020 Annual Maintenance Works

Please be advised that vessel THV Patricia is scheduled to carry out the annual navigation mark maintenance at the Wave Hub offshore site from 11th September 2020 or as soon as possible thereafter as weather permits. The works are estimated to take 2-3 days and a further notice will be issued when the scheduled maintenance is complete.

The work will be confined to the vicinity of each of the six Wave Hub navigation marks. During operations, the ship will at times be restricted in ability to manoeuvre and mariners are requested to give a wide berth of at least 500m.

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