Manor Marine has won their first contract with VolkerStevin to build two pontoons for the Thanckes Fuel Depot upgrade project in Plymouth, Devon.
Build of the pontoons commenced at the beginning of March 2021; they will serve as an upgraded crew access and refuelling pontoon. The refuelling pontoon will be 33 metres in length and the crew access pontoon will be 19 metres in length, both constructed from heavy duty steel. The pontoons are being built to meet Lloyds Classification Society rules.
Leif Cooper, Managing Director at Manor Marine said, “We are always keen to expand our customer base and working with a client such as VolkerStevin is a fantastic opportunity to support a well-established Maritime Civil Engineering contractor. As you would expect from a customer such as VolkerStevin, the specification of the two pontoons is of an extremely high standard, so aligning that with Lloyds Classification rules and in-build surveys gives Manor Marine the opportunity to fully demonstrate the high quality of workmanship required to deliver pontoons of this calibre.”
Delivery of the new pontoons for VolkerStevin is scheduled for early Summer 2021.
