Cammell Laird has one of the best and most competitive heavy fabrication facilities in the engineering industry, including having one of the largest modular construction halls in Europe and an extensive network of workshops.
Cammell Laird has invested over 10m pounds in infrastructure upgrades to transform it into one of the UKs prime hubs for the offshore wind farm sector.
The investment has seen Cammell Laird used as the base port for the construction of the Gwynt y Mor wind farm in the Irish Sea. The base port area is some 14 hectares (32 acres) and it is from this area that the foundations for 160 wind turbines were successfully pre-assembled, loaded and shipped to the farm location some 18km off the coast.
Our track record and capabilities make Cammell Laird your ideal heavy fabrication partner in support of the civil nuclear programme. Our developed quality and project control processes and systems can be applied to civil nuclear applications. We have demonstrated this through project studies for off-site modular fabrication, systems outfit, integration, testing and commissioning. We have storage facilities that allow us to hold modules until they are needed on site.
In June 2008, Cammell Laird was awarded a Through Life Support Agreement with the UK MoDs Defence Equipment and Support Organisation for the maintenance of a group of 11 ships of the Royal Fleet Auxiliary. This agreement is for 30 years subject to reviews every 5 years and the 2nd 5 year term was confirmed in 2013.
Increasingly, Naval Auxiliaries need to remain on location and not return to UK for maintenance periods and upgrades. Cammell Laird has an alliance with Keppel Shipyard Ltd, a member of one of the largest ship repair and marine engineering companies in the world. This allows Cammell Laird to carry out work in overseas locations and to date we have conducted 47 maintenance periods across 14 countries accounting for some 3229 tasks in total overseas.
