Port of Villefranche
Successful barrier deployment exercise at the Port of Villefranche Darse
As part of its ‘Ports Propres’ (Clean Ports) certification, on 27th March the Villefranche-Darse team carried out a barrier deployment exercise, which was executed perfectly.
A 25 m section was towed back from the Port de la Santé, then it was connected to the 25m section kept below the Port de la Darse lighthouse.
The entrance was largely blocked by the 50m barrier, then the vessel moored ‘along side’ below the lighthouse was encircled.
The deployment of the barrier was relatively easy, with no problems being reported.
This exercise permitted the teams of the Conseil Départemental 06 and the French Riviera Chamber of Commerce to test the equipment and their responsiveness.
