Kish Bank Light House

Work commenced in July 2018  for repairs of Kish Bank Lighthouse. The work involved accessing the lighthouse which is some 10km off the coast and carrying out maintenance work and essential upgrades. The logistics of this project was a big operation as we were working in the middle of the Irish Sea, we had to navigate our access point and board the lighthouse with all essential equipment to carry out the work involved – Client – The Commissioner of Irish Lights.
