Manor Marine, an OEG Group company, has been contracted by Jenkins Marine, a leading supplier of dredging and workboat solutions, to provide slipway, repair and maintenance services for the 26 metre multi-category vessel, ‘Avon’.
The scope of work on the Avon included slip and unslip, with four weeks on the slipway, wash off, painting, propeller change and replacement of the shaft seals. The shipyard’s two open slipways utilise slip trolleys capable of hauling vessels up to 40 metres in length, 350 tonnes in weight and with a beam of up to 20 metres.
Chris Beals, Project Manager at Manor Marine, commented, “We are pleased to once again be working with Jenkins Marine; they are a valued client of ours and it’s great to be seeing their vessels using our facilities.”
Dan Jenkins, Director at Jenkins Marine, said, “We’re pleased to be using the services of Manor Marine again, one of our regular partners for dry docking works. It’s great to see an independent UK shipyard continuing to be open for business and offering such a diverse range of services, which is essential for UK based operators, especially in a time when such facilities are becoming fewer and further between. We have a strong working relationship with the team at Manor, they’ve done a good job and we won’t hesitate to call them for our next docking requirement.”
Manor Marine’s extensive berthing and shipping facilities, along with their comprehensive range of services, enable the shipyard to undertake all manner of vessel repair and maintenance projects.
