KML’s heavy lift crane barge BD6072




























KML, working for the Marine Accident Investigation Branch (MAIB), successfully salvaged fishing vessel Louisa. The 15m fishing boat sank off Mingulay in the Outer Hebrides and was after dive inspections and lift preparations  raised by KML’s heavy lift crane barge BD6072. The Louisa was transported on deck of the BD6072 and lifted ashore at Clydebank for further investigations by the MAIB.
The wreck of the Louisa SY30 can be seen in the background of Rothesay Dock.Sadly three crew members died,with one man managing to swim ashore.
