Ascension Islands project complete

Build and delivery of a new cargo-carrying barge for the Government of the Ascension Islands has been completed by Manor Marine.

The successful project follows the delivery of three almost identical barges, also commissioned for shipping to and use in the Ascension Island waters, in 2018.  Construction of the latest barge started in August 2020 and was ready for delivery just four months later. Heavily constructed, the 17-metre self-propelled barge was built in two halves for shipping to the island.

Managing Director Leif Cooper commented, “Manor Marine has been building these types of barges for over 25 years and has exported vessels all over the world. The Ascension Island Government has been a pleasure to work with throughout this project.

“The quality of the construction and the finish from the Manor Marine Team was to a high standard and has helped us to firm up several orders with clients booked for 2021/22. This is important business for us and, we believe, for the continuing growth of manufacturing in the UK.

“We look forward to continuing with our exporting over the coming years to contribute to our security and expansion.”
