Strainstall open new mooring facility
Strainstall announce the opening of a new dedicated mooring production facility.
Strainstall, a part of James Fisher and Son plc, has announced the opening of a new production facility based in Bembridge, Isle of Wight.
The new 10,000sqft facility produces the full range of mooring hooks and mooring units including a bespoke service specific to customer requirements. It is fully equipped with a 7.5T pendant controlled overhead crane, fork lift trucks and high load racking to ensure maximum efficiency and optimum product turnaround.
The facility also houses a test rig that can test hook units up to 350T. The rig electronically records all hook data during testing and downloads to a document that gives the customer instant access to the test data.
Full testing is carried out in-house before being despatched to their customer’s sites. All of the customer’s hook units are tested using Strainstall own test equipment and witnessed by a certifying body.
Staff at the Bembridge facility are supported by engineering, electronic and software staff from the Strainstall head office at Cowes to ensure one seamless operation.
Strainstall's managing director, Simon Everett, commented:
“We are delighted that our Bembridge base is now operational. We have moved Quick Release Hook production from Belgium bringing it closer to the team here in Cowes, enabling us to offer an integrated FAT for the Quick Release Hooks and Berth Management Systems for our customers. We believe this product line has good growth potential and this new facility will give us the potential to expand to meet the needs of our customers into the future. We are also delighted to bring this investment to the local economy where we have a committed and growing workforce."
The facility has its own stores and packing staff to ensure that all units leaving for delivery to our customers are suitable packaged and quality inspected to ensure that they arrive in a condition where they can be immediately installed ready for commissioning by Strainstall commissioning engineers.
