'Split One' and 'Red Fighter' in Belfast
The split barge 'Split One' (left) and the "open bottom backhoe dredger" 'Red Fighter' tied up at the Victoria Channel in Belfast docks. They have both been working on a project to extend the Stormont Wharf in the channel.
Stormont Wharf, Belfast
Wharf at the Victoria Channel, Belfast docks. The wharf was constructed 1956-62 by Charles Brand & Son, to provide a total lineal quayage of 580 metres; this was further extended by an additional 250 metres which was completed in 2009. Stormont Wharf is now one of the longest deep water quays in Ireland.
