When Briggs Marine took over the contract for Pilot Launch operations in the Port of Liverpool, the fleet of launches was in much need of updating. Investment in these keys assets was vital in order to continue offering a reliable and consistent service.
As part of its contract with Peel Ports, Briggs introduced five new ‘state of the art’ vessels over a four-year period, regaining steady state operations and providing the client with confidence in the operation for years to come. Additional benefits of the new vessels include improved transit times, enhanced crew comfort and safety and reduced fatigue. In terms of performance, Briggs has achieved exceptional improvement in successful, timely Pilot transfers as well providing significant savings in fuel usage due to the modern hull design and more efficient engines.
Briggs Marine has recently completed the vessel replacement programme with the last two (of five) vessels being brought into service successfully. This renewal and modernisation of Briggs Marine’s assets ensure its capabilities remain at the very highest standard and over-perform in relation to the requirements of its long-term contract with Peel Ports.
