UK Shipyard Celebrates Special Relationship

Press Release
Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Ship builders & repairers, A&P Group celebrate the relationship as they work on the 8th Serco ship docked in Falmouth in 2012

In 2010 A&P signed a multi-million pound contract with Serco to provide dry docking and ship repair services for five years, making the vessels a familiar sight in the docks.

Serco manages more than 100 vessels supporting the Ministry of Defence naval bases around the UK and A&P Group is well placed to provide this service with six dry docks in three different locations – Falmouth, Tyne and Tees.

Vessels which have been in Falmouth this year include the tugs SD Adept and SD Faithful, SD Powerful, SD Cawsand and SD Bovisand. The majority of the ships have undergone complete refits, including work in the engine room, a full electrical survey, refurbishing accommodation areas, paintwork and an inspection of propulsion units, anchors, cables and winches.

Superintendent Tony Jenkin, from Serco, said: “We are delighted with the work A&P has undertaken so far. A&P’s three locations across the country suit our needs perfectly and the company has a great track record of delivering high quality work, on time and to budget.”
