These branders are being installed in the Cromwell Harbour to protect the fishing boats in bad weather. The boats will ride against them, thus dampening any surge-effect during storms and will eliminate the risk of the boats being thrown onto the quayside in extreme conditions.

Stop Press: The first of the branders has already been fitted, the remaining installations depend on weather and tidal conditions being suitable and resources being available at those times; it is an ongoing project.
