Burgess Marine announces shipyard upgrade

Since Burgess Marine acquired Testbank Ship Repair in January 2013, their Portchester facility has seen a major investment. The UK-based shipyard has now announced a further £250,000 investment into the lift facility at their Portchester shipyard.

Their channel and syncrolift “pit” have been dredged extensively allowing vessels up to a maximum draft of 4.5m to utilise the ship lift. In line with further major investment in Trafalgar Wharf the wires, bearings and winches have all been overhauled and the infrastructure has been significantly improved.

Karl Kerry, general manager at Portchester commented, “The investment in the site has been well thought through and is substantial. We’ve spent over £250k on the footprint to both allow increased draft vessels up on to the ship lift, improve security and to better support our regular customers.”

Having recently completed the refit of M/Y Shermara, Burgess Marine also reported a successful time at Seawork International when they entered into a long-term agreement with Mainprize Offshore to build two 25m vessels.
