Bespoke youngster enables 80-year-old to retire

Investment in a new synchronised ship lift system is enabling the replacement of a restrictive older system originally built in the 1940s.

Manor Marine commissioned the bespoke North Sea Winches (NSW) hoist system as part of the company’s infrastructure improvement program and can now offer its new bespoke 80 tonne vessel lift to all customers.

The new hoist system utilises the latest control technology, driving four synchronised winches connected to the refurbished drop dock platform; reusing the original platform permits the hoist to accommodate the main shed trolley system, allowing internal workshop vessel builds or refits to be launched easily. The bespoke design is complemented by an additional winch also supplied by NSW to assist with the control of larger vessel launches from the main workshop facility.

Leif Cooper, Managing Director at Manor Marine said, “The upgraded hoist system represents significant investment for MM, enabling us to recover larger vessels more efficiently than we could previously. We have ongoing maintenance commitments to Manor Renewable Energy’s fleet of CTVs and this will allow for more versatile vessel recovery at short notice; I am pleased to see MRE’s Manor Brunel currently on the hoist for maintenance, marking our largest vessel lift on the hoist system to date.”

Rob Gretton, Managing Director of NSW stated; “North Sea Winches are pleased to have worked alongside Manor Marine again in designing and manufacturing their new electric, multiple winch, synchronised ship lift system.”
