Great North Run – Millionth Runner Celebration
How do you turn a dumb barge into a highly manoeuvrable vessel?
By using our Modular Pontoon and Pushing Tug System Tyne and Wear Marine Ltd helped to mark a milestone in the history of the Great North Run.
We transported, from TWM base in Tyne Dock, South Shields to Newcastle Quayside, the 18 metre high sculpture at a ceremony celebrating the history of the North East, and the millionth runner taking part in the annual half-marathon that took place on September 4th.
No stranger to taking part in high profile special events the Company once again exercised its capability to meet unique client demands by fitting 360 degree thruster units alongside the already in place twin engines of 150hp demonstrating how you do turn a ‘dumb barge’ into a highly manoeuvrable and responsive vessel to transport a special lady!
If you haven’t seen it yet, its well worth a viewing. SHIELDS GAZETTE Article – August 2014
