Cammell Laird's Ship Repair Division Experiences Significant Growth.

11 Jan 2024

Cammell Laird’s commercial ship repair division has experienced significant growth towards the end of 2023, up by 50% from this time last year.

In the last two months alone, the facility has welcomed more than 11 vessels for ship repair works – including new and returning customers.

Cammell Laird now operates as part of the wider APCL Group of shipbuilders and shiprepairers - which has helped the movement of vessels across all four facilities.

In addition to the company’s recent shipbuilding contract with Mersey Ferries, Cammell Laird also undertook the Royal Iris of the Mersey's annual maintenance works which included overhaul on both rudders, pulling of both shafts, new seals and steelwork inserts on her hull. The vessel is due to depart in late December.

Other vessels include returning customer Isle of Man Steam Packet Company's Manannan, Boskalis' Deo Gloria, Svitzer Pembroke, Boskalis Freeway, Svitzer Surrey, Calmac Ferry the Lord of the Isles and Vos Patriot.

Mike Hill, Managing Director of Cammell Laird, said: “I am delighted to see our commercial division so busy which is up 50% from this time last year.

"Over the past few months we have seen significant growth and dock utilisation across as well as having multi-ship, multi-year framework agreements in place with several customers."

"It is a fantastic end to 2023 and we look forward to welcoming further vessels in 2024."
