ASR are back

ASR’s team is back in Boscombe for repairs and remedial work on the reef following boat damage to two containers on the upper layer of the reef. The team will spend time coordinating their plans and mobilising on the ground, as well as diving and surveying the reef, before they get work underway next week.


Details of the work plan will be released as soon as these are finalised next week. Chris Jensen, Marketing Director for ASR said, “We have always said that the Boscombe reef is an important project for us and as such have agreed to use our performance payment in the contract to ensure that repairs are made in a timely fashion and that the structure is sound, safe and useable.” 

Tony Williams, Executive Director for Bournemouth Council said, “We are delighted to welcome ASR back to Boscombe.  Because these repair works are so essential, funds previously allocated for improvement are being used, with our expectation that a successful insurance claim will allow further refinement works to be done in due course.  We continue to press our insurers for the earliest possible decision on our claim, so that we can restart our discussions with ASR on refinement works to enhance performance.”  He added, “The works are not expected to cause any disruption to beach users or the Air Festival next week.”
