Briggs Marine has contracted with Meercat to provide three 9.5mtr line handling vessels and one 15.5mtr workboat. The workboat build is well underway and all vessels are expected to be delivered later this year.
The vessels will be operating in the Medway Estuary in support of Briggs Marine’s port services contract with Peel Ports London Medway, which allows for the renewal of its fleet currently in use.
Iain Ross, Director of Briggs Port and Marine, said “We are pleased to have signed this contract with the UK’s leading builder of versatile steel workboats. “The Briggs’ Team visited Meercat in Southampton last week and we were impressed by the progress and quality of the build. We’re confident that the vessels will meet and exceed the requirements of our long-term contract with Peel Ports London Medway.” He continued, “This investment in our assets will ensure the company’s capabilities remain at the very highest standard, and will allow it to continue offering a first-class service.”
