Suction Dredger 'baglan'

Can anybody help me with some research on the suction dredger Baglan
which was built in 1966 and worked for the British Transport Commission for
many years until they were taken over by Associated British Ports.
The last information I have on her was when she worked on the River Mersey
during the nineties dredging the Garston Channel near Liverpool.
Unfortunately I was never able to get a photograph of her.
Would anybody confirm what happened to her and a photo of her would be greatly appreciated?

Thanks

Keith

Hi Keith,
If you look on our site www.swanseadocks.co.uk under dredgers you will see a photo of the Baglan. It was taken just before she finished at Swansea and is not looking her best. Also there is a detailed drawing of her taken from the Eagle comic which explains how she operated. You are wellcome to copy the photo. Will enquire with ABP dredging section as to what happened to her.
All the best,
Ivor Lewis. ( There is a contact page to me on the site )

Thanks Ivor for your information relating to the Baglan.
Have looked at the site and the photos are very good.
I think the Baglan is working overseas at the moment but would be pleased
of any more information coming to light.

Best wishes
Keith
