Rhyl Flats: Survey Operations

From the 30th September 2011 the vessel Halcyon Days is due to be carrying out scientific survey operations within and around the Rhyl Flats Offshore windfarm for the next two weeks.

You can download a notice to mariners giving full details of these operations here.

The survey work is being carried out by the Centre for Marine and Coastal Studies (CMACS).  The survey will involve the use of a 2m beam trawl.

Halcyon Days is a 13m survey vessel with blue hull and white superstructure and equipped with AIS. The vessel will operate in and out of Liverpool on a daily basis, and will display appropriate day shapes or lights (including periods of reduced visibility).

Contact details for the vessels are:

  • Master: John Steel
  • Mobile Phone: 07966 166 526
  • VHF: hail on Channel 16

A wide berth is requested at all times as the vessel will be restricted in her ability to manoeuvre.
