Fabrication and Welding

The fabrication and welding department is staffed by skilled tradesmen experienced in both ship-repair and large scale vessel construction. This mix of skills ensures that the urgent timescales associated with ship-repair and conversion can be maintained but delivered with the quality associated with new-build projects.

Our time served fabricators are equally conversant in both steel and aluminium. Complex new structures and repairs are regularly undertaken to Class approved standards. The yard undertakes a high volume of aluminium repair work due to the proximity of fast-craft in the Port of Liverpool and the Irish sea.

Skilled welders are coded by Class Societies (MiG/SWAM), – Lloyds, DNV and GL – in welding of Mild Steel, Gr 01 – EH36 and Marine Grade Aluminium 5083.

We regularly work with our clients to up-skill our welder qualifications for specific projects.

Our fully equipped Production Workshops are accredited by Germanischer Lloyd for Welding and Fabrication to a new-build standard.
