Turnkey vessel services


Known more for the design and construction of Aluminium Wind Farm Service vessels (WFvSs), 2014 saw a record number of operators using Alicats vessel lift and turnkey maintenance services. With as many as eight wind farm support vessels plus other smaller craft standing on the yard at the same time the lift has been busy on a daily basis with some vessels being returned to water following completion just a few short hours later.


Some vessels stay longer for larger maintenance projects. The variety of servicing carried out onsite include repowering, structural repairs, modifications, painting and refit.


GREAT YARMOUTH FACILITY Alicat Workboats facility in Great Yarmouth includes the WISE 200T Mobile vessel lift capable of the fast liftout of vessels up to 200 tonnes, 40m long, 11m beam.


To ensure minimum downtime operators are taking calculated weather breaks to fulfil maintenance schedules essential to ensure their vessels are kept in excellent working order. The heavy workload of WFSV's can take its toll on a craft and it's passengers if strict maintenance isn't carried out and the company offer all major services onsite.


COLLECTIVE SERVICES From fabrication to fenders, marine electrics to mechanical engineering, hydraulics to hardware, the company has strategically put together collective services designed to remove the necessity for calls to multiple third party companies which can cause additional downtime when waiting for availability & travel time.


One call or email with your work list and a team of experts will do the rest, even at short notice.


PORTFOLIO


The company’s portfolio also includes an extensive fleet of fully equipped service vehicles ensuring many repairs can be carried out in situ with the company promising fast mobilisation.

While your crew is onsite they will be looked after. Alicat Workboats Limited is located directly between Great Yarmouth and Gorleston-on-Sea and being on the main bus route the yard is just 5 minutes away from either town centre and all amenities. The railway station is 15 minutes’ walk away and just a 45 minute drive from Norwich Airport.


NEW WORKSHOPS


2014 also saw the addition of new workshops on the other side of the River Yare which include new specialist divisions Alicat Stainless Steel Fabrication and Alicat Hydraulics, while the Alicat Marine Design office in Southampton relocated to larger offices within their original location.


NEW ORDERS


In December the company announced two new orders for new build catamarans with Iceni Marine Services placing an order for an Alicat 21m WFSV and Dalby Offshore ordering an Alicat 23m WFSV which will be a sister vessel to the very popular Dalby Swale.
