The pipe and crane showed up in Lough Foyle a few days ago. The pipe was floated here in six sections by tugboats from Norway and will be 4km in length when connected and completed. The crane along with a floating platform also arrived to do the connection work. Twenty five tonne blocks will be used to connect the pipe. It will be assembled here in Moville over the next few months before being moved to Blackpool, Lancashire, where it will be used to upgrade the public sewage system there. When completed it will be floated out in one giant 4km piece.
