‘Scotia Tide’ was surveyed in January 2019 with the following comments noted:-

The hull of the barge is in good condition with good coating
The main decks of the pontoons are in good condition with good coating
With the exception of the aft crossbeam, internal compartments were not accessed at time of survey. The aft crossbeam was in very good condition internally
The three Timberland winches are wire rope were all in very good condition. The hydraulic power packs could not be closely examined at time of survey due to their winterized condition and coering, but these were reported to be in good, serviceable condition
The deck crane was not observed in operation but was reported and appeared to be in good operating condition
The control cabin and all components located inside were in good condition
The barge experiences minimal use at its intended purpose of deployment and recovery of a tidal turbine. Prior to the present situation, it remained warm stacked, maintained and ready for use.
‘Scotia Tide’ will be sold ‘as is, where is’. She is currently moored at the premises of DP World, Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada.

The buyer will remove the vessel from her current berth no later than fifteen calendar days after delivery of the executed bill of sale or such other date as may be agreed between the operators of the berth and the buyer.
