Fabrication and Welding
Cammell Laird’ 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 both maintained and 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 customers 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.
