Hurricane Dorian, Grand Bahamas AtoN recovery

Today the Navmoorteam reestablished the front leading mark, installing the Port Entry Light(PEL) and two ‘bi-form’ lanterns to highlight the column’s location when not on bearing.

We aligned the high precision LED PEL utilising the tug, and pilot boat for heading sector confirmation. The system is fully solarised, and has GSM monitoring and control, both great features for such a remote location. We’re leaving for home tomorrow, it’s been a great few days, and we’re delighted to be coming back in just a few weeks to carry out the installation of the recovered buoys, moorings and sinkers.
