From Georgia With Love… CM2007…Jenkins Marine are delighted to announce the addition to its fleet of a 50m x 14m flat top spud leg pontoon, ‘CM2007’ following its purchase and recent arrival from Georgia.
Following inspection and purchase of the pontoon in Georgia this February, CM2007 has been in transit under tow back to Jenkins Marine UK headquarters in Poole. This has taken a remarkable 50 days following significant delays due to bad weather conditions. The pontoon arrived in Poole in early April, and the team at Poole have worked non-stop to install fendering and handrails to the vessel ready for it’s first charter with Jenkins Marine as new owners.
CM2007 was built in 2007 by Dutch shipyard ‘Neptune’, and is a sister vessel to Jenkins Marine’s other 50m x 14m pontoon ‘JML 50’. She has an impressive 1,300t deck capacity together with pockets for 2no. 610mm diameter spud legs.
Jenkins Marine Director Dan Jenkins said:
“I am very pleased to report that following inspection and delivery the pontoon is in excellent condition and has current BV loadline certification, and is ready to go to work!.“
The pontoon is already booked on a 6 month bareboat charter to work for joint venture company ‘FLO’ on the Thames Tideway project, on the River Thames.
