DescriptionTitle: Naming of survey vessel – Thame The newest addition to our fleet of vessels that surveys the bed of the tidal River Thames, Thame was officially named by Heidi Alexander, the Deputy Mayor of London for Transport. The vessel deploys state-of-the-art sonar, laser and photographic equipment to map ever-changing contours of the river bed in the UK’s busiest inland waterway and second biggest port. Named after the Thames tributary that rises in Buckinghamshire, Thame was christened in a ceremony at Tower Pier, which also included a blessing by the Reverend Sophia Acland of All Hallows by the Tower.
Our new strategy is centred on three roles for the PLA: Protect, Improve and Promote. Find out what this means from our stakeholders and PLA employees as we work to encourage greater use of the river, in line with the Thames Vision http://www.pla.co.uk/About-Us/The-Thames-Vision.
Our latest film showcases the visit to the Thames by a team of women who, as an eXXpedition crew on board yacht Sea Dragon, circumnavigated the UK to sample British waters for micro plastics and chemicals. It features interviews including: Emily Penn, eXXpedition co-founder and ocean advocate; Paul Rose, explorer and broadcaster; PLA environment manager, Tanya Ferry and Kids Against Plastic.
