Port of London Authority
Tidal Thames

Our new £7 million multi-purpose river maintenance vessel, London Titan, was officially named by Thurrock MP Jackie Doyle-Price
in a ceremony at Tower Pier
this week.

A versatile Thames ‘Transformer’, London Titan, has been specially designed to work along virtually
all of the PLA’s 95 miles of the
tidal Thames. She is squat and shallow enough to negotiate bridges as far upriver as Richmond, and robust enough to operate in
the outer estuary. Titan’s work
will include: mooring maintenance; laying and recovering navigation buoys; hauling wreckage from the riverbed; supporting diving and

civil engineering operations; and plough dredging.

Shipping minister Robert Goodwill MP was guest of honour at the event. He said:

“Britain has a proud maritime history and this investment by the

Port of London Authority will help ensure the sector continues to thrive. The government is doing everything possible to back this industry as part of its long-term economic plan to create jobs and growth.
