    Maritime engineering firm Intermarine UK opens new facility at Portland Port, Dorset

    Maritime engineering company Intermarine UK is unveiling major growth plans after investing a six-figure sum in a new 2400sqm fabrication and welding facility at Portland Port in Dorset, UK creating up to 60 new jobs for local people in the next two years, the company said in its press release.
     
    The move sees Intermarine UK sign a 20-year lease and move its UK head office from Bridgend to Portland Port, a former naval base and the second largest man-made harbour in the world.
     
    Inter Marine Group President Slawomir Kalicki said the Polish owned company will start operations from March offering ship repair services at Portland. In addition, he said the facility is looking to work with shipyards around the UK offering a range of engineering services to the ship repair, refit, conversion and shipbuilding markets.
     
    Portland Port CEO Bill Reeves said Intermarine UK’s new facility will strengthen Portland Port’s operations.
     
    Mr Kalicki said Intermarine UK has bought a variety of new equipment for the facility including CNC plasma cutter press break, hydraulic pyramid rolls and other steel production machinery. He said the operation would be run by Craig Didio, who previously was involved into other serious project where Intermarine was involved.
     
    Mr Kalicki said other prime areas for growth included shipbuilding and the offshore industry where it can build super structures and ‘yellow steel’ products.
     
    In addition Intermarine UK we will be providing ship spare parts from Portland including Wartsila, Cegielski, Sulzer, MAN, B&W and Cummins engines, Hydroster IMO pumps, Alfa Laval and Westfalia separators, ABB and Napier and WSK turbochargers as well as marine laundry equipment made by Primus and Lavamac.
     
    Portland is commercial port located in Dorset on the UK's south coast. Portland Port operated as a base for the Royal Navy for nearly 150 years from the mid 19th century through to 1996 when Portland Port was then privatised and taken over by the Langham Group. Portland Harbour Authority later took over as the statutory harbour authority in 1998. Due to its geographical location, it allows fast, safe access 24 hours a day. The port has a strong reputation as the south coast's "premier service station", where vessels are able to undertake a wide range of services; ownership/management/name change surveys, classification surveys, stores and crew transfers, as well as a wealth of underwater operations.
