NEP dock in use for Bibby Sapphire

The last remaining working dry dock on the North side of the river was last used to dismantle Ice Maiden 1 (see here). It was re-opened this weekend to admit Bibby Sapphire a diving support vessel for a ‘refit’ or more accurately “a new propeller and stuff” according to the gateman.
