A&P Tees Goes from Strength to Strength

Monday, October 13, 2003
A&P Group’s Teesside facility, located near Middlesborough, has made a successful start since re-opening for business earlier this year, success in both use of the shipyard and offering users of the River Tees, and surrounding areas, an effective and efficient ‘Shipcare’ service. The first vessel drydocked at the shipyard was the 3,086 dwt dredger Heortnesse, which is owned by Tees & Hartlepool Port Authority. This vessel underwent thruster repairs. The largest contract since then has been a two week drydocking of Farstad Shipping’s 4,680 dwt offshore supply vessel Far Service, which was in for a two week drydocking operation during late July/early August. Other drydocking contracts have included dredgers and tugs operating in the Tees region. Currently in the shipyard is the 1,739 dwt river dredger Cleveland County, in the yard for emergency repairs. When the Patricia leaves drydock, James Fisher’s coastal tanker Chartsman is due in for a special survey. A&P Tees has also been very successful in carrying out voyage and in-port repairs to ships in the region. There are lay-by berths available, as well as a 40 tonne capacity dockside crane, and a tank-cleaning berth (150 m) with a capacity of taking up to 100 tonnes of slops. A&P is to increase the capacity of this facility by the end of this year, when 400 tonnes of slops can be taken. The Tees facility has two drydocks, the largest being 175.26 m x 22.25 m x 7.92 m and is equipped with a total of six cranes varying from 40 tonnes to 5 tonnes lifting capacity. Berthage is available for vessels up to 260 m with a minimum depth of 8.0 m - the berths are equipped with cranage up to 40 tonnes.
