Peterhead’s state-of-the-art shiplift can accommodate vessels weighing up to 2,000 tonnes for inspection, repair, maintenance or survey.
The procedure to raise or lower the ship normally takes less than an hour and the vessel can use either the outside berth or the covered repair hall.
The hall can take vessels of up to 47m in length and 25.2m in height. Indoor working means projects can be completed in a controlled environment whatever the weather conditions. This is a significant benefit, particularly for painting and welding.
Both interior and exterior berths provide ample flat working space around the vessel to accommodate plant and equipment in a safe manner. There is good access to the vessel at various different levels and the facilities are serviced with high capacity power supplies.
