Pendennis opens new dry dock
Pendennis wanted to develop a new dry dock, which gave them maximum flexibility and ease of operation. They were extending the existing dry dock and wanted to improve on their existing system to accommodate the building of much larger superyachts. The existing doors were rusting and very difficult to open and the customer required the site operational as quick as possible.
Reasons and Impact
The new door is very easy to operate and has increased the natural light into the building, thus reducing the energy costs and enhancing the working conditions. The Pendennis logo is 20m wide × 7m high and can be seen by anyone entering Falmouth harbour. The customer was happy that the building was provided in 17 weeks, from drawing board to install.
