Ship No 528

MacBridge Unit

Now this order was pretty ironic, considering that it was an order for the Dundee Harbour Authority.

Remember it was not long since the Dundee half (Caledon) of Robb Caledon had been forced to close down due to lack of support and orders from British Shipbuilders.

The order was to build a Mac Bridge Unit for the port, in effect a bridge connection, ship to shore that can move up and down with the tides. It measured 33 metres long by 23 metres wide and had a height of 1.5 metres.
