Cammell Laird upgrades shipbuilding hall.

MERSEYSIDE shiprepair company Cammell Laird is investing more than £1m ($1.6m) to upgrade its shipbuilding hall in preparation for a surge in conversion contracts.

The Birkenhead-based company, formerly Northwestern Shiprepairers, is tendering for commercial ship conversion contracts and will build a section of the new Royal Navy 65,000 tonnes aircraft carrier with the new facilities.

?We are investing in the shipbuilding hall, to bring it up to modern standards, including £1m on new cranes and we are also investing in the workforce, information technology and management systems,? a spokesman said.

The company will consider taking on ships of any size, including very large crude carriers.

Cammell Laird hopes it can capitalise on the ongoing phase out of single-hull tanker as owners will consider alternatives to demolishing their vessels.

Cammell Laird started last week extending the 1976-built Skagerrak cable laying ship from the French owner Nexens Group, a job that will keep 200 workers busy until the end of March.

The ship will be lengthened by 12.5 m, with a new hull section inserted, and upgraded with an additional accommodation module and a new working deck and cranes.
