Video: Launch of London Titan, February 2015

By Curious

The Port of London Authority’s (PLA) brand new £7 million London Titan vessel was constructed with one main objective in mind and that was to keep the Thames clear of obstructions and maintain it marked and safe for anybody to use. The Thames is one of the UK’s busiest, and naturally has a large number of vessels using it on a daily basis, ranging from HMS Illustrious to Thames Clippers, from cruisers to rowing boats.

The vessel was launched at Manor Marine’s shipyard in Portland, Dorset on the 21st of February this year.
