Attenuator work to start at Snug Cove

There is further confirmation of the attenuator for Eden’s Snug Cove with the news that some of those with moorings in the vicinity of the planned attenuator are being asked to relocate their vessels.

NSW Roads and Maritime Services has contacted a number of owners whose vessels are in the footprint of the site stating that according to advice from the Department of Industry, work will start from Monday, August 13.

The work will comprise over-water geotechnical boreholes drilled from a jack-up barge and is expected to take about three weeks.

RMS said in its letter to vessel owners that prior to finalising the fixed wave attenuator design, additional site investigations need to be undertaken to support the project’s engineering requirements. In addition to the boreholes there will be a geophysical survey to investigate depth and strength of rock beneath Snug Cove.
