SD Genevieve – Dry Dock Lift

Serco’s vessels just keep coming…

No sooner had we got the scaffolding on the SD Norton ready to get started on that scheduled project, and the SD Genevieve arrives

At over 40 years old, she will inevitably need some tlc during our planned work but our engineers will be more than capable of taking care of her

Heron Refit Southampton

The IME Group have now grown and are now undertaking refits in Southampton docks.

IME Group have just recently completed a refit of the Sand Heron for Cemex Marine. Work involved the extensive fabrication and welding of the vessel alongside in southampton docks.

This was completed 5 days earlier than planned, and the client was very happy with the overal results.

The Health & Safety processes and general attention to safety of the work was found to be very positive and reassuring.

Close to 100 safety inductions were made during the refit.

Safety matters are often reported when something goes wrong, and it is pleasing to be able to provide some positive feedback.

Overall it was very positive feedback and was highly commended by Lloyds register, particularly due to the confined space entry and evacuation arrangements.
