The coaling jetty at Battersea Power Station has recently been renovated for commercial use and I was asked to photograph the progress of this project for MPB Structures. The jetty is 133m long and 11 m wide. It was constructed as part of Battersea Power Station and received coal from barges on the river Thames. The coal was transported to the Boiler House via various cranes, hoppers and conveyors. The huge cranes were dismantled and transported by barge to Tilbury docks in 2014. In February 2019 works started to make the jetty a space to facilitate public access and pop up events. Exterior works included the installation of decking, two bridges and the installation of a glass balustrade.
