LHR Marine Support Project Golden Cross
Tuesday, Sep 27, 2011
Marine Safety is a key concern for LHR Marine, therefore they are delighted to announce their sponsorship of Project Golden Cross. Saving maritime heritage is no easy task but this non-profit making exercise is designed – not only to restore a famous Clyde-built historic tugboat to her former glory – but allow her to take up a community role of promoting Safety at Sea to commercial marine operators and leisure craft users in Scotland whilst highlighting the achievements of Royal Navy, Royal Air Force, HM Coastguard and Mountain Rescue.
With assistance from the Scottish Government, 2012/13 will also see Golden Cross holding functions and presenting displays at high profile locations to encourage trade & exports: home and overseas guests with an interest in defence, offshore, oil and gas, maritime, engineering and alternative energy sectors attending. The Golden Cross is now the last operational vessel of her class in the world and is still powered by her original Crossley of Manchester 4 cylinder 2 stroke 882hp main diesel engine.
On the back of this announcement; The Defence Interaction Intelligence Agency (DIIA) has produced a special report entitled: A Special Report on Mooring, Marine & Offshore Safety Equipment.
