UNDER ARMOUR LAUNCH

BETTER BY WATER

PROJECT DETAILS

When: September 2015
Where: King George V Dock; Tower Bridge; Butler’s Wharf Pier

Under Armour wanted to kick off their involvement with the 2015 Rugby World Cup with this activation and also promote their new base layer which all the Under Armour athletes would be wearing during the tournament.

Six shipping containers placed on their ends on our flat top pontoon, Rover. A huge graphic was displayed on one side of the containers and revealed as the barge sailed through Tower Bridge. The barge then moored at Butler’s Wharf Pier and International rugby players, Jamie Roberts and Jamie Cudmore, attended a photo call.

HOW LIVETT'S MADE IT HAPPEN

We locked the Rover into King George V Lock where containers were then craned onto the barge and welded down to the deck. The graphic was then applied to the side of the container and the Thames Vixen towed the barge up through Tower Bridge, just in time for a convenient Bridge Lift, providing the perfect photo! The client hired Butler’s Wharf Pier to host the event and Livett’s provided all of the essential marine coordination and liaison with the Port of London Authority.

CLIENT FEEDBACK

"We are super happy with how it all went, you guys made it so easy and pain free. So thank you so much for all your help and support (and letting us be your crew!). It's definitely more fun going to work on the river, especially if you can get to work on a speedboat every day!”
