Towage Floating Caisson

Towage of a caisson (dock gate) from Holland to the UK.

Over the past 20 years, we have towed dozens of similar caissons.

Caissons are floating “boxes” that are placed at the seaward end of a dry dock to block the interior. The caisson can be flooded to seat it in the opening of the dock to close it, or pumped dry to float it and allow it to be towed clear of the dock.
