24 Hr PFC Maritime Boat Repair

A ship arrived at Immingham docks and proceeds to offload one of its life boats after completing normal port duties. DCL had suitable transport on the quayside to carry a 6.5 metre lifeboat to our factory in Erith. The transport arrives at our Erith location at 20.00hrs.

A team of 4 laminators were on site waiting for the arrival. The life boat was off loaded and made safe prior to the team commencing repair operations. The team worked through the night and was joined by the painter at 06:00 hrs to complete the repair and paint process.

The repair craft was loaded onto transport at 10:00hrs and transported to Grimsby where the ship had moved to for loading. The life boat was loaded back onto the ship by 16:30.  This boat was on site in Erith for just 14 hours and was fully repaired and painted in this time in accordance with our agreed procedures.  This operation was carried out with less than 24 hours notice from the client.
