As part of their charter, Marine and Safety Tasmania (MAST) are always re-investing in the marine infrastructure around Tasmania. They are actively responsible for the continued improvement of our public boat ramps, public moorings and other safety mechanisms like floating safety marks.

Lead Lights are vitally important to the safety of marine vessels and their passengers. These lights provide navigation assistance to guid a vessel safely into or out of port.
TasPorts commissioned Channel Mooring Maintenance to manage the logistics of safely conducting a repair team and its mobile cherry picker out to the Beltana Lead Light for servicing and repair of this essential service.
The repair included replacement of the existing light fitting. Testing and checking of electric components and repair of the existing paint covering.
The principal contractor, Pitt & Sherry needed to record the geological composition of the sea floor in the area of North West Bay to determine the viability of running an underwater sewerage line to Howden across the bay. To achieve this they commissioned KMR Drilling ,who have extensive experience with sea bed and underwater drilling, to provide a set of sea bed core samples.
KMR Drilling have a long history working with Channel Mooring Maintenance and sub-contracted to us to provide the barge and crew to facilitate this project.
