Boluda Towage assisted in the docking of HMS Daring in Liverpool


On 20 September 2021, the Royal Navy's Type 45 Destroyer HMS Daring (D32) has been towed by the tugs of Boluda Towage into Liverpool, down the River Mersey, and into the drydock of Cammell Lairds. She was entering Lairds for maintenance works after spending a period of time in Portsmouth having work done.


Prior to the start of operations, meetings were held with representatives, to discuss all safety aspects of the launching operation and the transit from the shipyard. This resulted in an overview of the required operational preparations and procedures, outlined responsibilities, communications, and nautical restrictions.


The project was a special towage operation and Boluda Towage is delighted to be a part of this. Prior to the docking operation, we made special ropes and calculated the lengths for safe execution, and secured the lines at the stern of the hull. The crews aboard excelled with the utmost professionalism, from attending meetings, helping with the plan to carrying out this job.


Professional cooperation between all teams involved contributed to the smooth and safe docking of HMS Daring. Well done to everyone involved with the planning, preparation, and execution.
