We have recently been given the opportunity to work on an exciting project with Trinity House, to carry out substantial maintenance works on their Lighthouses and Lightvessels in various locations around the country.

Trinity House was incorporated by The Royal Charter in 1514, operating as a charity they are committed to the safeguarding of seafarers and shipping and delivering efficient aids to navigation for the safety of all mariners.

Some of the Lighthouses we worked on include Hurst Point, Portland Bill and Start Point.  Our experienced team of Electrical and Mechanical Engineers carried out a range of maintenance tasks, such as:

  • Virtual AIS Installs
  • Engine control cubicle, electrical design
  • Modernisation and cubicle build on Lightvessels
  • Asbestos Removal/Testing
  • Removal of redundant equipment (compressors, air receivers, fog signal)

As well as Lighthouses, Engineers also worked on several Lightvessels, updating and modernising systems onboard.  One of the vessels housed the Met office weather monitoring and sea state equipment.

A Framework agreement was also in place to carry out work for the Northern Lighthouse Board (NLB).  Here various cubicle installations were carried out at locations in the

North including the Orkney Islands.

Project Outcome

Both projects were very successful, as the upgrades were completed to time and on budget, resulting in a satisfied client.
