Mainstay Marine acquires hoist

UK-headquartered Mainstay Marine has acquired a 160-tonne lifting capacity amphibious boat hoist.

The Pembroke Dock-based company said the unit will lift vessels at its 4.6 ha site.

Built by Italian company Boat Lift, the remote-controlled crane weighs 60 tons (54 tonnes) and measures 12 m in height. It has six lifting winches and can be immersed in water up to 5 m deep. It will be able to lift vessels with a 9 m beam and a 4.5 m draught.

Stewart Graves, managing director at Mainstay Marine, commented: “The boat hoist will complement our recent upgrades to our slipways giving us the ability to provide customers with a much more flexible service for vessels up to 650 ton (590 tonnes)." The company’s other facilities include a wet basin, four slipways and a ro-ro jetty.

Mainstay Marine said that the hoist will be used to launch the Welsh Fisheries Protection vessel Rhodri Morgan, as well as the 19 m-long catamaran Lady Megan, both of which are being built on site.

The hoist could also be used in the EUR76 million (USD85.7 million) Swansea City development project at Pembroke port, which will support the marine renewable sector in Wales, according to Mainstay Marine.
